Things to Do

Swinging city

Swing past Old Market Square on Monday night to enjoy some swing dancing. Hepcat Studio is bringing the swing-dancing fun to the Cube, and all you have to bring is a lawn chair and your family, friends, kids or pets. Never tried swing dancing before? That's perfect, because there's a beginner lesson at 7 p.m., followed by social dancing until 10 p.m. It's free, and if you want you can bring snacks and games to play between dancing.

First look at Fringe

Excited for the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival to start? If you're counting down the days, the countdown just got a bit shorter because you can catch a glimpse of what's to come with The Jenny Revue Prevue tonight at the King's Head Pub. The preview will give you a taste of some of the shows you'll see at the festival. It will include scenes from several shows, so you can come enjoy a sample-size of comedy, improv, drama and music. The show starts at 8 p.m., with $10 admission at the door.

Hip-hop fun

This Friday, things are hip-happening at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church at 525 Wardlaw Ave., with a hip-hop concert featuring local artists such as Nucky Jmc and Heavee Ruxspin. There will also be a DJ and light show, pizza and raffle prizes. Tickets are $8 at the door, and the concert starts at 9 p.m.

Family-photo fundraiser

It's time to comb your children's hair and get those matching outfits ready for a family portrait that can do good for the community. Lunches With Love is a group that makes paper-bag lunches for the homeless, and this Saturday they are having a Family Foto Day Fundraiser. For a minimum $40 donation in cash, credit, or grocery gift cards, you can get a professional 8x10 family portrait. It's happening at Grant's Old Mill from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and you can book an appointment by messaging Lunches With Love's Facebook page.

Soccer Sunday

You don't need to be in Brazil to watch good soccer. You can watch Manitoba Major Soccer League action in person. This afternoon is the second meeting of the season between the Major Senior League First Division's FC Internazionale and Bonivital United. Bonivital took the last match between the two 2-1, even though FC Internazionale has two of the league's top-10 scorers, while Bonivital's top scorer cracks the list at 22. The game starts at 2 p.m. at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex.

Robot roundup

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to have a robot? Maybe one like Rosie from The Jetsons, who could be your personal maid or butler? That may be a tad far-fetched, but you can certainly learn about robots at the West Kildonan Library on Friday. Kids can come listen to stories about robots, and there will be a robot craft. Call 204-986-4389 to register.

Have a field day

This one's for the farmers! Lakeland Field Days are Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You'll be able to see live cattle, sheep-handling demos and several displays, including electric fences and weigh-scale systems. Plus, there will be specials and a free barbecue lunch. It's happening on Limestone Drive in Stonewall. You can find more details at
