January 22, 2019
Victoria Inn Hotel

Dreams range from hockey games, to trips to Disney World and everything in between.

Until Next Year Red River Mutual Trail

March 13, 2018

Another year, another record broken! The Red River Mutual Trail that runs from the heart of the city straight to Arlington St, was a whopping 7.5 km and was open for 70days. While this Winnipeg gem holds a place in every ‘peggers heart for different reasons, my personal favourite thing about the trail are the warming huts. The warming hut competition entertains entries from all over the world and a lucky few get to see their architecture dreams come true. Here are some…
