You could argue that every day is Manitoba Day at the Manitoba Museum.
But Saturday, May 12 will be extra special as the museum celebrates our province's 142nd anniversary.
Admission will be free all day from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a huge lineup of special events. And there will be cake -- shaped like Manitoba.
As part of the Arts, Culture & Heritage Fair, CBC's Information Radio host Terry MacLeod will host three panel discussions called "Manitoba Notables" featuring a broad array of guests.
At 12:00 the panel includes Winnipeg broadcaster Rosanna Deerchild; playwright Ian Ross, famous for his "Joe from Winnipeg" routine on CBC Radio and Television; and a presentation of top ten Manitoba destinations presented by Travel Manitoba.
Later panel discussions feature musician Sean Quigley of "Little Drummer Boy" fame, rock music historian John Einarson and Chief Ovide Mercredi, former National Chief for the Assembly of First Nations.
