Long weekend happenings

  • Print

THE Canada Day long weekend has arrived, and that means some businesses are closing to celebrate all things patriotic.

But as Canada Day falls on a Sunday this year, the Holiday Act has a quirky plan for this calendar rarity.

Here's your guide to all the long weekend closures.

Shop 'til you drop

All Winnipeg shopping malls will be open for regular business hours on Sunday but will close Monday.

The Forks Market, on the other hand, will be open both Sunday and Monday.

Hitting the town

The Manitoba Museum will be open Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Children's Museum will be open Sunday and Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., but the Winnipeg Art Gallery is closed both days.

Movie theatres are open both days. Check local listings for showtimes.

City services

All civic offices will be closed Monday.

Garbage and recycling days will be bumped one day, with no collection on Monday. Collection resumes Tuesday, which will be Day 2.

Cemetery grounds at Brookside, St. Vital and Transcona will be open Sunday and Monday from dawn until dusk.

Animal services will be closed on Sunday and open from noon until 5 p.m. on Monday.

Canada Day (Sunday) will operate as usual, while Monday will operate on a Saturday schedule. There will also be a free Canada Day shuttle from downtown to The Forks and Osborne from noon until midnight.
