What up Winnipeg!?

As a resident of this city, I often hear people complaining about having “nothing to do” in Winnipeg. So I decided to dedicate a blog post every month with a list of things to do in the city in the upcoming month. I’m going to affectionately call this series “What up Winnipeg!?”, because I once saw a show called “What up Waddena” when I was 15 and I thought that was the funniest thing ever. No one said I had a great sense of humour.

Without further ado, here’s what’s happening in our lovely city this month:

Canada Day at the Forks presented by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries
