So who knew there was lots of learning to be had at the Red River Ex? Last night we spent the evening at Winnipeg’s mega fair touring mobile homes (yep, we actually did that), learning about farm animals, touching reptiles, checking out military action, viewing interesting art, eating crazy carny food and enjoying the overall atmosphere.
This was my first visit to the Red River Exhibition Park — I used to go all the time when it was closer-to-home at the stadium. It’s so much larger now, but I do miss the crowded feel of the old venue. It seemed busier and packed to the brim back then. Maybe it’s just my older eyes fooling me. One thing is for sure, the shopping is still cheesy and atrocious.
