Souris is living proof you can’t keep a good community down.
Three years after the devastating flood of 2011 demolished the iconic swinging bridge, the community is hosting the Souris Still Swingin’ Weekend.
The four-day event will kick off tonight with a concert featuring Canadian country music star Aaron Pritchett and Juno-nominated Desiree Dorion.
Saturday begins with a pancake breakfast at the Kirkup Lounge, before an official dedication ceremony of the Souris swinging bridge at noon.
On Sunday, festival-goers will be treated to a scavenger hunt in the afternoon, while a classic car show starts at 4 p.m. on Crescent Avenue.
The event wraps up on Monday, with family entertainment and a fireworks display at the Victoria Park Bowl after dusk.
