We were in town for Canada Day this year and we did the rounds of Winnipeg's three main Canada events this afternoon.
Eselin and the Geek's bikes sport Canadian flags to keep the spirit.
I have never seen so many bikes at The Forks. I guess if you have to pay $5 for 'parking' to even enter the area from any street encouraged people to arrive by bicycle.
Osborne Street was also closed to traffic and here bike parking was at a premium. People space was also at a premium, so we didn't stay long.
As we continued on toward Assiniboine Park, Wellington Crescent, the most direct route, was also closed to vehicle traffic, as it is on Sundays and all statutory holidays that fall in the summer months.
And because we are such a melting pot of nationalities, we stopped for sushi on the way home.
Happy Birthday Canada!
