At the 37th Annual Heritage Awards May 3rd, The Hudson was very proud to be the recipient of The Michael Williams Award. This award was created in 2002 to honour the work of the late Michael Williams and recognizes outstanding rehabilitation in downtown Victoria. Townline Homes is thrilled to see this magnificent building restored to its former glory. This truly will be the heart of the new Hudson District and is the start of great things to come in the neighbourhood.
With the arrival of the warmer part of our spring, it’s a great time to take in some local events. Check out what’s happening in our very own backyard of downtown Victoria and the Old Town District:
1) Visit the Sunday Market in the Square, (formally Government Street Market) now every Sunday – May to Sept 25th in its new location in Centennial Square. This offers something for everyone, arts, crafts, and a farmers market of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables plus live entertainment. 11 am to 4:30 p.m. It’s only about 5 minutes away from The Hudson!
2) This Victoria Day long weekend don’t miss the Victoria Day Parade, which will head downtown right past The Hudson on Douglas Street May 23rd. Marching bands, floats and clowns will all be part of the fun.
3) Take in another piece of Victoria’s history May 21 – 22 at the 148th annual Victoria Highland Games and Celtic Festival at Topaz Park. Not to be missed events include haggis hurling, sheep dog herding, highland dancing competitions and pipe band performances. Check out www.victoriahighlandgames.com for more info.
Take care and hope to see you soon.
