Remember visiting The Forks with your mom when you were a kid? Exploring the Manitoba Children’s Museum, snacking on mini-donuts and climbing all the way up to the top of the tower? You’re older now, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of ways to enjoy The Forks with your mom this Mother’s Day, no matter your age or budget.
Treat your mama to a total spa experience.
A trip to the spa is a classic gift, so why change what works? Riverstone Spa at The Inn at the Forks has it all: tranquil music, calm lighting and a soothing massage to help your mom escape her stresses. Not to mention, she will need someone to go with, so why not treat yourself while you’re at it.
*For a more affordable spa alternative: grab a candle and bath soak from Coal and Canary, a book at McNally Robinson + even a bottle of her favourite wine from Ellement Wine + Spirits make the perfect combo for an at-home spa day.

You can’t go wrong with a piece of jewelry made in town.
Shop The Forks Market to find that special piece of bling your mom’s wardrobe is missing. Plus, it’s a bonus to know it was made by a local jeweler.

Take a walk around The Forks
Believe it or not, summer is on its way. Take mom on a walk around The Forks to see the seasons change in the Public Orchard or along the Assiniboine on the Riverwalk.

Catch up over a glass of wine from The Common
No one is more in-the-know than your mom. Let her fill you in over a glass, or a flight of wine from The Common’s specially crafted wine list.
Shop the Luckygirl Pop-up happening Saturday at The Forks Market
Have a date day with your Mom on Saturday and peruse the great local vendors curated by Luckygirl, or swing by yourself to pick out a few treats to gift to mom on Sunday (but also for yourself, who are we kidding). And don't forget to take a selfie with your mom in front of Kal Barteski's latest piece of artwork while you're upstairs!
