It has been a cool few days, but hardly cool enough to stop the fun from carrying on. And speaking of fun, there are a few things on the horizon, which we think you’ll find super-interesting like the upcoming Wall-to-Wall, ManyFest, and Farmers’ Feast. For a few more ideas of things you can do in the province, check out the Travel Manitoba website for a full listing of events.
