Long before Winnipeg’s famed intersection of Portage and Main became known as the crossroads of Canada, the most famous intersection on the prairies was just a few hundred feet away: The Forks.
It’s the mighty meeting place of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, and when this intersection was at its busiest, the transportation du jour was the canoe.
So what better band to perform at Canada’s National Historic Site of the Forks, right on the swollen banks of the Red River, than the Juno-nominated Winnipeg band Royal Canoe?
And what better band to take on a sunset river cruise up and down the rivers seeing the sites of Winnipeg the way they were meant to be seen?
And… is Winnipeg really the mosquito capital of Canada? Can Grant handle it? Watch the video to find out.
