Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival 2011

In The Pas, the winter months can be filled with lots of snow, ice, high windchills, and cold weather, but our community is very fortunate to have several activities to warm our hearts! Every year in mid-February, our town pulls out all the stops to celebrate the Northern Manitoba Trapper's Festival.  This year's motto: Trapper's Heaven in 2011.  Allow the grade five's of Kelsey Community School to tell you all about it!
