An estimated 40,000 people filled the area to hear classical musical performances at one of the largest outdoor orchestral events in North America. Performers included Maestro Christian Kluxen guiding the Victoria Symphony, the Splash Young Soloists, pipers and other special guests.
Events ran all afternoon starting at 1:00 and the concert began at 7 p.m., capped off by a fireworks display that thrilled the crowd.
