There’s one thing all of us ‘90s babies have in common – if you grew up in Winnipeg, you probably have memories of spending time at The Forks. Remember being covered in sticky cinnamon sugar after pouring the leftovers from the donut bag into your mouth? Sweet, sweet times.
All the fun doesn’t have to be over! Grab your friends – and hey, their kids too if they have ‘em – and head to The Forks this weekend to experience your childhood all over again.
1. Find that long-lost Beanie Baby at Kite and Kaboodle
2. Eat a Skinner’s hot dog
3. The Common: the new lemonade stand
Trade memories of mixing all the Kool-Aid flavours together and making your friends to drink it for trying the best of craft beers and wines at The Common instead. Those double-dog-dares of days gone by have built up your now-sophisticated taste buds to appreciate these homegrown adult drinks. Try a flight of four locally crafted beers or three artisan wines – these will definitely go down easier.
4. Mini Donut Factory: Need we say more?
5. Rediscover and explore at the Children’s Museum
6. Act like a kid in a candy store at Sugar Mountain
7. Climb up the Market Tower
