Happy Canada day everyone! I know Im a little late on this but I just wanted to sit down and talk to you guys about my wonderful province and Canada! Lately there has been some negative news on tv that keeps breaking my heart. It really gives you a perspective of how blessed you are that those things are not happening to you and how you shouldnt take that for granted.
As for me, I love living in my province of Manitoba, let alone Canada itself! When I became Miss Teenage Manitoba I did appreciate everything around me before but it has also opened me up to a new perspective. As Miss Teenage Manitoba, you get opportunities to participate in things that you never really thought about participating in. It gives you a push to go even farther than youve already have. It pushes me to be more involved and really use the platform I was blessed enough to be given and make the most of it.
I would like to share some of the things I was able to be apart of in my home city and province. The downtown area are where most of the things that happen in Winnipeg and which is also where I live currently for those who dont know! But Manitoba overall, has a lot of of events that happen throughout the year especially in summer.
The things that I recently were apart of were Kids Fest, Pride Winnipeg, and KIK Picnic to name a few and all of them were happening at the Forks. There are tons of places to visit in Manitoba but one of the main attractions tourists should visit is The Forks in Winnipeg. Most city events happen in that area thats why its such a nice place to visit when you are in town.
The Forks is one of my favourite places to go in Winnipeg. It is a bunch of different old buildings that was made into kind of market that have a bunch of little boutiques, restaurants, and even entertainment. Its definitely a go to place if you want to do and see fun things when youre in Winnipeg! Here is the quote from The Forks Website so I dont get anything wrong to give you the exact definition what The Forks is all about The Forks, Winnipeg’s meeting place. Nestled in the heart of downtown, The Forks is one of Winnipeg’s most beloved places, at the junction of the Assiniboine and mighty Red rivers.
We’ve been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Early Aboriginal peoples traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders, Métis buffalo hunters, Scottish settlers, riverboat workers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants.
Today, framed by the banks of the two rivers, The Forks is Winnipeg’s number one tourist destination with more than four million visitors annually.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, The Forks is a must for a stunning array of dining experiences, incomparable shopping, a constantly changing slate of entertainment and events, and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and man-made features.

Manitoba overall is such a diverse province that celebrates all kinds of cultures. Thats what I love because everyone is very open to learning about new cultures and accepting what they have to offer. Another event that happens in Winnipeg that celebrates diversity is Folkarama that is coming soon! And Canada overall celebrates diversity and encourages you to embrace your Canadian identity but also to not forget your root heritage as well which is pretty amazing if you ask me.
So if youre ever in Manitoba please check out those wonderful events in places! Theres tons of places to go in Manitoba and Canada! Be proud of who you are, where you come from, and remember to treat everyone with love and respect no matter what! The world is always better in peace ❤️
Thank you everyone who continue to read my blog! I will try to keep making more as I can! Have a wonderful day 🙂
