Manitoba’s unique buildings and culturally diverse citizens took centre stage last week for our Instagram challenge. It was lovely to see so many posts feature the friendly and proud faces who make our cultural gatherings some of the best in the world. And the love you shared for our old structures from a tipi to a hot dog joint to a schoolhouse reminded us of how diverse our history is.

The three finalists for the 🌎 🍁 Rich Culture and Heritage 🍁 🌎 challenge are…

Angela Balisi (@mavsnaps)

It looks like Angela had a colourful whirlwind of a week checking out many of the exciting pavilions of Folklorama — the world’s largest and longest running multicultural festival.

Karyn (@_soley_)

Karyn posted two Icelandic culture photos that took our breath away. Plus, the caption that went along with her schoolhouse photo was as interesting as the photo was captivating.

Carol (@carolroe28)

Carol shared an interesting mix of Manitoba’s unique culture last week. She showcased everything from a tipi at Folklorama to a nostalgic nosh in lockport to a deliciously green photo of freshly-preserved pickles.

Out and about enjoying the rich culture and festivities at Folklorama
