Torontonians are settling in for the first long-weekend of the season and the forecast is for a beautiful three days.

Saturday, Sunday and Monday are all going to be sunny and warm, according to Environment Canada, with just a few clouds getting in the way.

The big weekend finale will be the annual fireworks display at Ashbridge's Bay.

Hundreds of thousands show up for the late-night show every year. People can watch for free anywhere along the eastern beaches from Coxwell to Victoria Park.

The threat of a strike at the LCBO has also disappeared, meaning the liquor stories will be open on Saturday and Sunday, but closed on Victoria Day.

Beer stores will also be open on Saturday and Sunday, but closed Monday - along with most shopping malls.

Here's a list of what's open and closed this weekend:
