There's no shortage of things to do on July 1st. From musicians to fireworks, Winnipeg has got you covered. Check out Assiniboine Park, Osborne Village Streetfest, the Forks or any combination of the above. But if crowds aren't your thing, there's nothing better than a backyard BBQ.
(Free admission to the Assiniboine Park Zoo is usually a Canada Day tradition but the zoo will be closed until July 3rd in preparation of the Churchill exhibit - something to check out this summer!)
