Start the New Year off with an afternoon of fun and celebration at the annual New Year's Levee. The Lt.-Gov Janice Filmon is inviting everyone to the Manitoba Legislative Building between 2:30 and 4 pm. on New Year's Day.
There will be sleigh rides around the Legislative Building for those willing to brave the weather and Magician Evan Morgan will be performing walk-around magic throughout the afternoon.
Entertainers this year will include the Winnipeg Police Service Choir, The Winnipeg Boys Choir, and the RING OUT! Handbell Quartet.
Members of the Manitoba Living History Society and the United Empire Loyalists Associations will attend in heritage costume. Scouts and Girl Guides will be on hand to serve light refreshments to the crowd.
Donations of canned and non-perishable food to support Winnipeg Harvest will be collected. A collection box will be located in the front lobby of the Legislative Building.
