Here comes summer! It has been slow to get here but now that its arrived, here's hoping it sticks around and brings lots of sun, fun and heat! Manitoba summers offer plenty for families to do! Every week there is a festival or country fair. From local city events like the Children's Festival, the Fringe Festival, downtown Out to Lunch concerts, the Folk Festival and Folklorama to rural festivals that take place from Selkirk to Morris, Carman to Dauphin... be a tourist in your own province! Check out our packed Family Fun Calendar to get you started on planning the best summer yet!
Summer camp season is coming too and we give you many ideas for camps in and out of the city that offer great experiences for children of all ages. Whatever your child's interest... there is a camp that can nurture it! Sending your child to camp offers them the chance to learn new skills and meet new friends. Make sure your child is ready for sleep-away camp by having him sleep over at friends and grandparent's houses. Can he tie his shoelaces and shower himself? Can he make good decisions? This are all important when going to sleep-away camp.
We live in a GREAT city and we have so many exciting new things happening here. Our population is rising, our economy is stable, housing prices reasonable, we don't have to spend hours in traffic, we have a newer airport, an everchanging Zoo and the incredible Canadian Museum of Human Rights to bring in visitors from around the world. Our Manitoba Children's Museum, Manitoba Museum and Royal Aviation Museum are all gems to explore this summer.
For shoppers we have the beautiful new Outlet Mall across from IKEA and Kildonan Place has expanded. Can we take all this excitement? Yes We Can!
Have a great June and July filled with family fun, adventure and togetherness!
