Soaking in Summer's Last Long Weekend

Posted on Sep 01, 2016 by The Forks Market

Oh, how we're going to miss the long days in the summer sun, biking around, and sipping caesars on the patio with friends. The air is starting to cool down, the sun is starting to set earlier, and the leaves are slowly changing from rich green to a yellow-ish tinge.

BUT – it's not over yet! Luckily, we have one last weekend to adventure in the summer air, so let's make it the best one yet.

Here are our top 5 things to do at The Forks this long weekend:

  1. Take a photo-walk

It's beginning to feel all too real that summer doesn't last forever, so capture the memories while you can – especially in the gorgeous summer/fall lighting. Grab some friends, your camera or phone and snap away around The Forks. Be sure to tag The Forks on Instagram (@theforkswinnipeg) when sharing them with friends.

  1. Drop a line

One of the best things about summer is the bragging rights of getting the catch of the season. Pack up your jigs and fishing poles, and pull up a chair with us along the Assiniboine River for the Fall Fishing Derby this Saturday. Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. under The Canopy.

  1. Go to the beach

Just because you're in the middle of Winnipeg for the long weekend, doesn't mean you can't take a trip to the beach. Grab an ice cream from Neon Cone and good book from Forks Trading Co. and snag a deck on the Beachscape.

  1. Spruce up the school bag

Okay, we know, you don't want to think about going back to school or your last long-weekend of freedom. But, school-supply shopping can be fun – we promise! Especially when your picking up eco-friendly goodies from Generation Green.

  1. Dance the weekend away

Take a walk down to Oodena Celebration Circle to see the Founding Nations Pow Wow. This will be their last one of the summer, so come soak in all the beauty of the colours, dancing and celebration of culture.

Whatever you do this weekend, have a blast and make the best of it!
