Heritage festival to celebrate nation's military history

  • Print

THE nation's military history will be the focus as Canada's largest heritage festival gets underway in central Manitoba this week.

The 60th annual Manitoba Threshermen's Reunion and Stampede, a celebration of pioneer life in this country, is proud to host Canada's Armed Forces as part of this year's military heritage feature attraction.

The 1st Regiment Royal Canadian Horse Artillery and the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry will be honoured. The festival will display a number of vintage military vehicles.

The four-day reunion and stampede, put on by the Manitoba Agricultural Museum, starts Thursday and runs through the weekend in Austin.

On top of the military showcase, the reunion and stampede will once again offer a glimpse into Manitoba's history, reliving the customs of 1890 through pioneer and farming demonstrations. Live music, a classic car show, a rodeo and a dance also highlight the weekend's activity list.
