Boardwalk Days is back again to show attendees why the Winnipeg Beach moniker is “Where Manitoba plays”.
This year Boardwalk Days returns with festival staples and the promise of a great time for all ages.
A Wonder Shows midway will be set up throughout the weekend for those looking for some games and fast-paced fun. There will also be an outdoor craft and vendor market for those looking to take home and/or enjoy something tasty or unique.
On Saturday evening at 7 p.m. the Fighting Hellfish will take to the bandstand to get some bodies moving. According to Allan Sulyma, recreational director for the festival, the Fighting Hellfish have proven that they’re the right mix for the crowd at the festival.
“We’ve had the Fighting Hellfish here before,” Sulyma says. “They’re a really good band. They do a bit of everything. They’ll start back from the glam rock days in the 70’s and take you right up to some stuff that’s on the radio today. They’re a really good mix of 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and up. They’re very professional and a lot of fun.”
There will also be a big parade on the Saturday morning and Saturday night there will be a huge fireworks show, purportedly bigger than last year’s.
All this, along with huge crowds, bustling energy, and a stunning lakeside view - there’s certain to be something the whole family can enjoy.
