Hydro pole falls on Winnipeg Folklorama pavilion, cuts power
Hydro pole repaired after falling on St. Boniface community centre hosting Andean pavilion
Power has been restored to the building housing Folklorama's Andean pavilion
Manitoba Hydro crews were out Wednesday repairing a fallen hydro pole that cut off power to Notre Dame Community Centre – the location of the Andean pavilion in St. Boniface.
Around 10 a.m. Wednesday a delivery truck backed into and downed the pole, Manitoba Hydro said.
Organizers at the Andean pavilion got a call around 11 a.m. notifying them of the potential hang-up for Wednesday night festivities.
Andean pavilion volunteers pressed on and were cooking food for the Wednesday night 6:45 p.m. show in a nearby location.
Power was restored in the nick of time and Andean pavilion festivities are going forward as planned.
