10 Things to Do in Manitoba: May 6 to 12

Posted May 02, 2024 | Author Desiree Rantala

Love. It's in the air, it's everywhere! We love watching and experiencing the transition from spring to summer, when buds begin to bloom and new growth appears. We love finding our way to farmers' markets with friends, or savouring a new beverage or sweet treat. We love to discover art and outdoor adventure in neighbouring rural communities or getting up close and personal with new animal friends. We love celebrating the little things such as an at-home pizza party or cycling down our favourite path. We love the place we call home. Here are 10 things to do this week in Manitoba.
