Final festival day brings big crowds

The celebrations continue with the final day of the Lieutenant Governor’s Winter Festival bringing in big crowds.

Brandonites didn't shy away from the Festival despite an off-the-mark weather forcast for today.

A few hundred people greeted Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee at the First Nation pavilion at the Brandon Friendship Centre.

Following dancing and drumming, the second lieutenant-governor to preside over the events was presented with a star blanket by the pavilion’s organizers.

Lee accepted the gift with his wife Anita, and they also made appearances at the Brazil pavilion and the Global Village pavilion today.

Over at the popular German pavilion, more than 500 visitors came through the doors of the Victoria Inn during the first 90 minutes of the day.

All 13 pavilions continue cultural celebrations today and tonight.
