Out and About

Spring is the time of year that we leave hibernation mode and get our gears working again. Not only do I use this time of year to re organize my home, but we also try to get out of the house as much as we can and see what is happening in the community.

This is a great time of year to join your neighbours, family and friends at the many events happening around the community. The first big one for us in the year is the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair put on by Provincial Exhibition. This year it ran from March 27th-April 1st and is never a disappointment! Our favourites are the petting zoo, super dogs, the demos at the TD Ag Action Stage and the horse jumping at Westman Place. This is definitely an event you can spend all day at and is great for all ages!

We also love attending The Brandon Home and LeisureShow as a family. The kids seem to have just as much fun as the adults do! This year the Home Show will be in its 51st year and held at the Keystone Centre from April 7th-9th. This show never seems to disappoint, probably because we always have something we are renovating or in need of! Many exhibitors have interactive displays and product you can purchase right at the show. This will be another show we will not be missing this year!

One of my favourite activities to do with our daughter is attend local musical productions around Brandon. The first one we are really looking forward to this year is The Lion King. This production is put on by Mecca Productions and will be their 4th all kids musical! It will run May 4th- 6th in the amphitheatre at the Keystone Centre, contact the Keystone Centre Ticket Office for tickets. The music from Lion King is one of our favourite Disney soundtracks, and I’m sure it will be a hit with all ages!

These are just a few of the events we plan to hit up this Spring, with an array of activities and events happening around the community, why not get out and check some out with your family!
