Every winter since 1970 Saint Boniface the French quarter of Winnipeg is transformed into a winter paradise and becomes host to the largest winter festival, Festival du Voyageur, in Western Canada. Voyageur, Metis and First Nations histories are brought back to life, not only through the historical interpretation offered inside reconstructed Fort Gibraltar, but also through the many attractions inside Voyageur Park and at the various official sites. Music of old, traditional cuisine, sensational snow sculptures and captivating shows are but a few examples of the entertainment you can expect to witness during this convivial gathering.


This shot was taken on Louis Riel Day in 2016.


Louis Riel was a Canadian politician, a founder of the province of Manitoba, and a political leader of the Metis people of the Canadian Prairies.

This really is a celebration of your culture - and your super picture really works with your explanation to show that. Great!
