, tasting wine and cheese at The Forks
, watching The Brink at PTE
or going on a ghostly tour at Lower Fort Garry

Oct 13 | Canad Inns Stadium
It's definitely been an interesting season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to say the least. Last week they took on Montreal and won and this weekend they will try to do it again versus the Calgary Stampeders. The game starts at noon and the skies are looking sunny - a perfect afternoon for football! There’s still great seats available. Find your tickets through Ticketmaster
Oct 14 | Locations across Manitoba
Dozens of communities around our wonderful province are offering down-home cooking, local ingredients and regional delicacies at their fall suppers. These grass-roots get-togethers offer garden-fresh produce and main courses often prepared from locally raised poultry, beef, and pork. Home-baked pies and cakes draw crowds year after year. Here's a handy map to find a supper near you
IMAX - To the Arctic 3D
Shows daily | Portage Place
If you want to stay inside this weekend but still take in the beauty of the Great White North, journey To the Arctic 3D
to watch a never-before-experienced adventure into the lives of a mother polar bear and her cubs. Captivating, adventurous and intimate footage brings you up close to a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snow-bound peaks.
