The long weekend is finally here! That means three whole days of enjoying time with family and trying out new restaurants with friends.
If you're spending the long weekend in the city like us, come hang out at The Forks – there's tons to do!
Here are some of our favorite things:
Grab some friends, and start your weekend with a craft beer or a glass of wine at The Common in the newly renovated Forks Market. Cheer to the weekend and celebrate the three days of fun ahead!
Okay – yes this is a bit extreme. But, if crazy water boots aren't your thing, take a Splash Dash tour and have a nice easy ride on the pontoon while learning about Winnipeg.
This is the last weekend to eat at Dancing Noodle in the NEXT kiosk! Dancing Noodle has been delicious, but it's time to move on to the NEXT great chef. If you get there at the right time, you might even see the chef hand-pulling the noodles.
There's little better on a Sunday afternoon than a walk around a farmers' market, picking up local goodies. The Forks Farmers' Market runs from 11am - 4pm, so stop by in between brunch and Sunday adventures.
End your three-day weekend with an evening walk around the site. The sun usually starts setting around 8:30. So, grab an ice cream from Neon Cone and climb to the top of Market Tower or grab a piece of grass in Festival Field.
Enjoy your long weekend, Winnipeg! We sure will!
