Fun Virtual Events to Do in Early 2021

Posted by on

The first few months are usually a tough time of year for a lot of people. The excitement of the holidays is over, it’s back to school and work, and although we’re certainly lucky to live in Victoria it does get pretty dark and rainy here at this time of year.

Luckily there are a few fun things to do while staying warm, dry, comfortable, and safe in your own home. Here are some fun virtual events we’ve found that you may want to check out.
