Well, our summer challenge is a wrap! We’ve had the best time over the last three months seeing and sharing your summer moments. From thrilling wildlife encounters to stark architectural scenes to just sitting back and loving lake life, you showed us how unique and spectacular Manitoba is. Thank you to everyone who tagged their moments with #exploremb, we couldn’t get enough of your stunning photos and fascinating stories.
For our last challenge, we wanted to see one last hurrah for summer before the #exploremb feed turns gold for fall. The three finalists for the ☀️ Best Summer Moments ☀️ are…
Michelle Panting (@fullwpg)
There’s a wistful dreaminess to Michelle’s photos. She has this knack for uncovering a new way to look at Winnipeg. She also brings that interesting perspective to her writing for her blog FULL, which showcases the ‘Peg’s culture, food and lifestyle.
Jessie had us at “Roadside Attraction.” We can’t resist someone who loves to visit our quirky roadside icons. We also got a kick out of how Jessie did a full countdown for her six “Favourite Manitoba Summer Moments.”
Trev Boernsen (@uncletrevv)
Trev shared how hanging out with a great group of friends is the best way to enjoy summer. Tulabi Falls, Bird Lake, Winnipeg Beach, Gull Lake, FortWhyte Alive, Bird’s Hill Park and some random farm field are just a few of the places Trev explored this summer. In a word: Busy!
Best summer moment submission for #exploremb @travelmanitoba trip. Yesterday evening with a great group of friends. We made it over to Tulabi Falls to have a look and a hike up the trails to see the most incredible view ever. I hear far too often how people don't like it here and want to move to the west coast or east coast but I'd say Manitoba has got them beat! #manitoba #canada #exploremb #travelmb #tulabifalls #explorecanada #explorehisearth
Congratulations, Michelle, Jessie and Trev, you all win an #ExploreMB Instagram Moments book and are now finalists for our Instagram trip to Churchill.
