Default abbotsford border, long weekend, best time?

I realize there's probably no good answer to this one, but my parents are coming up from the USA around the labour day long week-end. they're planning on crossing on Sunday as they hope it'll be less insane, however they're also considering crossing on tuesday. The concern is that lots of people might be extending their holiday and coming through on tuesday as well.

I've never crossed there, can anyone who has or lives nearby offer a suggestion?

Thanks!

Abby crossing is only open 8 to 8. If it's not a weekend start or end, Sumas/Huntingdon can be faster as it's further from vancity

I travel every weekend through the Sumas Border Crossing, and my take is Friday PM is worse for incoming; and Monday PM is worse for returning. If they come through the border around 6:30 am Saturday or Sunday they should expect a lot less traffic than 7:30 am, 8:00 am so on..

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

You're thinking of the Aldergrove crossing when you say Abby. The Huntingdon crossing is the Abbotsford one.

My experience is that most of the time, if the crossings are busy, the Huntington crossing is a little less so.
