Happy August Long Weekend!
Although some people like to use the long weekend for much needed rest and relaxation, many of us like to use the long weekend to organize our calendars or homes. We thought we would help you add some dates into that calendar, which includes many local events in Winnipeg that are in celebration of women.
So, whether you are lake bound or at home for the long weekend, go grab your pen and paper!
