On Monday, Fort Dauphin Museum is hosting celebrations in honour of Louis Riel Day.

Louis Riel plays a significant part in Manitoba’s history.

Manager and Curator of Fort Dauphin Museum, Theresa Deyholos, explains what the day will entail:

“Everyone is welcome to come out and help celebrate some of the French-Canadian culture.  There will be live entertainment, voyageur games, snowshoeing; come and try some maple taffy on the snow, bannock over the fire, horse and wagon rides, and hot chocolate.”

Events start at 1:00 in the afternoon, with a silver collection at the door.
