Elvis is in the house! Or at least, the spirit of Elvis will be in the house at Centennial Concert Hall this weekend, as the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra presents “The King – A Tribute to Elvis“.
“Elvis Presley was the king…and he changed American music forever. We celebrate thrilling performances of his greatest hits, including Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Don’t Be Cruel, Hound Dog and more – like never before with a full symphony. This is not an impersonator show and features four Broadway veteran singers in a “Jersey Boys” style show and Elvis’s greatest hits with a new twist, shake, rattle and roll!”
The show runs Friday, October 17th at 8pm, Saturday, October 18th at 8pm and Sunday, October 19th at 2pm. Buy tickets online at wso.ca or Ticketmaster.
Halloween hasn’t even come yet, but some stores are already getting ready for Christmas! The holidays are on their way, and craft show season is upon us… why not get a head start on your shopping?
Scattered Seeds is Manitoba’s largest Christmas craft market, and it takes place October 17, 18, and 19 at Red River Exhibition Place (about 35 minutes from Arrowhead RV Park). In its 19th year, the show features crafts, food, and products from more than 100 artisans across Manitoba and Canada.
Admission is $7 (come and go all weekend) – plus you can get a coupon for a dollar off on their website. Happy shopping!
Here in southeastern Manitoba, the leaves have started to change colours with the season – aren’t they spectacular? A great way to celebrate the beauty of our prairie fall is to visit a pumpkin patch!
