The second annual Métis Day celebration Sunday filled Island Park with the sound of fiddle music and laughter — an infectious combination.
Throughout the day live music was featured on the Island’s main stage where a temporary dance floor came to life as the Nash boys danced the Red River Jig.
Children filled the dance floor to the delight of the hundreds of Métis who came out to celebrate their culture.
Melissa, St. Goddard, Johnny Dietrich, Eddie Sharp, Bob Fleury, Ken Wettlauffer, Terry Human and Kelsey McLennan were some of the performers
who kept the live music flowing.
The MMF Mobile Office was on tour this weekend. It was in Brandon on Saturday, Portage la Prairie on Sunday and in St. Lazare on Monday assisting with citizenship needs.
