Island Summer Games set for late June

One of Victoria's most beloved summer traditions is just around the corner. In late June, the annual Island Summer Games will return to the city for an amazing array of sports and fun social events. The competitions will take place at Topaz Park, and travellers and locals who are interested won't want to miss out on the action.

From June 29 to 30, the 2013 Island Summer Games will be returning to the B.C. capital. Events will start at 9 a.m. and run until 9 p.m. on each day, so spectators will have plenty of opportunities to check out the basketball, soccer, softball, ball hockey, dodgeball and touch football as teams compete in tournaments. 

If you're interested in checking out the festivities during the Island Summer Games, you can plan trips to the city and book rooms at a Victoria spa hotel. Whether you're cheering on friends and family or just watching some intense competition, you can enjoy the celebration taking place just steps from your hotel. Accommodations like the Magnolia Hotel and Spa are ideal for getaways like this, as it is close to many of the city's prime attractions and within walking distance of many landmarks in the famous inner harbour area.
