Coalition announces free concert
THE Coalition for Portage and Main has announced it will host a free concert at the intersection Saturday, featuring local bands, beer and food.
The volunteer-run event, called Open Fest, is being thrown the last weekend before Winnipeggers head to the polls to elect a new municipal government and cast a ballot on the intersection’s future.
Local bands Royal Canoe, Mahogany Frog and JP Hoe, among others, are scheduled to headline the event.
The festival starts at 2 p.m. and all proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation.
