Festival du Voyageur is an annual 10-day event that celebrates Manitoba’s French-Canadian history.
For a class assignment, I had to go to Festival du Voyageur armed with my camera, and lots of mittens to take photos of what was going on at the festival.
I went in the evening of February 14, 2015. I saw the sculptures, listened to some live music (including French rapping, which I did not understand, but sounded cool), rode a toboggan, and climbed a mountain of snow.
The park started filling up as the evening progressed. There was a mix of singles and couples around as Festival du Voyageur hosted a ‘Singles Night’ for those without a Valentine on Valentines Day.
The event seemed to get increasingly popular as the evening went on. When leaving the park around 8:30 p.m., hundreds of people were in line waiting to get into the park grounds.
Here are some photos:
