Weather a concern for Yuletide celebration at Fort la Reine Museum

Freezing rain that at one time closed the highway between Portage la Prairie and Headingly, caused reduced attendance at the Dec. 7 Yuletide celebration at the Fort la Reine Museum.

“Last year we had 300 attend,” said Fort la Reine Museum Executive Director Madison Connolly at the beginning of the afternoon event. “I heard they have closed down the highway and we are getting calls wondering if we cancelled because of the weather.”

All in all the weather during the event that began at 2 p.m. was mild and didn’t dampen the Yuletide fun for those who went.
