WINNIPEG — The weekend has finally arrived! Whether you’re hanging out with family, spending time outdoors, of checking off that Christmas list —; we have some fun events to try.
James and the Giant Peach
If you’re a Roald Dahl fan then you won’t want to miss this musical. James and the Giant Peach is a heartwarming musical adaption of the childhood book and features larger than life characters for the entire family. It kicks off Friday at 7:00 p.m. at the Manitoba Theater for Young People.
The CP Holiday Train
The CP Holiday Train is on track and set to roll into Winnipeg Friday night. Decked with holiday lights and Christmas cheer, the train will arrive at 9:15 p.m. at the tracks by Molson Street and Panet Road. The holiday train makes the annual trip through Canada and U.S., raising funds for local food banks. Entertainment is free, but you’re encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation.
Illusionist Darcy Oake
He’s been making big waves across the world, especially after making it to the 2014 finals on Britain’s Got Talent. Winnipegger, Darcy Oake is ending his Canadian Edge of Reality Tour at the MTS Centre Friday night. Oake’s illusionist show starts at 7:30 p.m.
First Fridays in the Exchange
It’s a mild December, so why not get outside and walk around in the city’s historic downtown district? On the first Friday of every month, Winnipeggers can experience the history of the Exchange District, by talking to artists in their studio, attend gallery openings, and enjoy dinner at a local café.
The holidays are a chance to make special memories through unique family experiences. That’s what the Winter Harp concert is hoping to give; with velvet gowns, golden instruments, candles, and scenic snowy backdrops. Winter’ Harp’s musicians and singers will be decked out in medieval costumes, and performing a collection of music that ranges from Christmas carols to Celtic world tunes.
