Esquimalt Buccaneer Days bring traffic changes

Esquimalt Road closed on May 11 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. from Dominion Street to Constance Avenue

In preparation of crowds – donning eye-patches and swords – hitting the streets in Esquimalt for the annual Buccaneer Days Parade, traffic and parking changes have been announced.

On Saturday, May 11, Esquimalt Road will be closed from approximately 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. from Dominion Street to Constance Avenue and drivers are advised to use alternate routes. BC Transit will also have adjusted routes to accommodate the event.

This historic annual three-day event takes place in the heart of Esquimalt with several activities scheduled for kids young and old. With the increase in traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular, festival goers are encouraged to use alternative modes of transportation.
