As a special end-of-year treat, we took a look back at Victoria Buzz’s most popular photos and videos on Facebook in 2017.

Not only is it easy to see why the scenic Victoria was named one of the top ten most instagrammed places in Canada, but we now also have a bucket list of locations to explore  in 2018!

From 5,000 people dressed in red and white to form a Canadian flag during the Canada 150 celebrations, to sights of activism during the Women’s March in Centennial Square, and a Sooke man dealing with bears that block his way to work in the most Canadian way possible – this past year has certainly been an eventful one!

So check out this highlight reel of the photos and videos that got the most likes, comments, and shares in 2017 from YOU – the audience of Victoria Buzz!
