I had a blast at the Lac Du Bonnet Canada Day Celebrations! Lac Du Bonnet always has so much going on in their little town, and their fireworks are one of the best in the country, so I was so excited to have a weekend full of amazing events to participate in!
My activities in Lac Du Bonnet started with the kids activity zone, where I found my hidden “talent”, face painting! They just threw me right into it as soon as I go there. I was really nervous at first, but when I saw the kids liked what I was doing, I had a great time!
My day continued with collecting donations for next years Canada Day fireworks. I was really happy to be able to meet a lot of new people and get more involved with the community. The people in Lac Du Bonnet are so friendly!
I got interviewed before the fireworks. They asked me about pageants and the national pageant I will be attending. I also talked about how I do strongly encourage girls to do pageants, because like I have said before, it’s not about how you look, it’s about what’s on the inside that really counts.
The second day I got to participate in the parade. A very generous man from the Lion’s Club (they make all the Lac Du Bonnet events possible) let me ride in his car. I got a banner custom made that said “Miss Teenage Manitoba.” I loved throwing candy to all the people around me and seeing the big smiles on their faces.
The last event I got to participate in was the talent show. Now I usually perform in talent shows, but in this case I actually got to judge it. It was very interesting being on the other side of the table and I loved it!
