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!

Schwabe Pumpkins is an autumn wonderland! They sell a huge variety of pumpkins, including coloured, textured and sugar/pie varieties, many different kinds of squash, gourds and ornamental corn. There are also lots of neat displays that provide fun photo opportunities, as well as a mini corn maze that’s perfect for little ones.
Schwabe Pumpkins is a third generation family farm and is located at 2728 Henderson Hwy, about half an hour from Arrowhead.
The world is smitten with Sherlock Holmes, and this fall the Manitoba Theatre Centre brings everyone’s favourite detective to the stage with Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily.
“Threatened with blackmail over private correspondence with the Prince of Wales, stage darling Lily Langtry turns to ingenious detective Sherlock Holmes to get them back. With the nation’s most precious jewels and the reputation of the monarchy at stake, Holmes must engage in a battle of wits with a former nemesis to solve the case. With a cast of characters featuring the trusty Dr. Watson and ostentatious playwright Oscar Wilde, this comedic adventure stands out as an entertaining mash-up of fact and fiction.”
The play runs most days from October 1st to 25th at the Manitoba Theatre Centre’s John Hirsch Mainstage, located in the Exchange District in downtown Winnipeg. Tickets can be bought online or at the door.
