In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canada, voyageurs of La Brigade de la Rivière Rouge, also celebrating its 40th anniversary, will be recreating a historic paddle along the Red River from St. Jean-Baptiste to The Forks.
Free community BBQs with special programming, including a voyageur storyteller and traditional music are planned at the two overnight stops. On the last day the general public is invited to join the Brigade on the last leg of the paddle from St. Norbert to The Forks. The trip will culminate with a historic gathering of “150 Canoes on the Rouge”.
For further information, and registration details on 150 Canoes on the Rouge, see the Rivers West Facebook page or visit our website at www.riverswest.ca.
