Week one of our Instagram challenge is in the books and you showed us a whole bunch of ways you celebrate summer in Manitoba. It was a water and fireworks whirlwind of a week. Here are our three finalists for our Instagram trip to Churchill…

Dom (@dmessier)

Dom knows how to do summer right. With a refreshing jump in the lake or a rejuvenating mud bath. We also loved her shot of all the bikes at Victoria Beach — no cars allowed!

Reid Valmestad (@reidov)

It looks like Reid is all about making a big splash to celebrate summer. His “Great weekend with great people” video is the epitome of care-free lake life. Reid also captured an amazing shot at one of our favourite summer celebrations: Canada Day at the Forks!

Great weekend with great people.

Joseph Koensgen (@josephkoensgen)

Joseph has the most amazing Instagram feed and last week he shared two different ways he celebrated summer: by hiking through a dense forest or staying up late to watch the stars. We like his style.

Congratulations, Dom, Reid and Joseph, you all win an #ExploreMB Instagram Moments book and are now finalists for our Instagram trip to Churchill.
