Winnipeg Folk Festival

The 36th annual Winnipeg Folk Festival will come to an end for another year later today.

Attendance records are expected to be broken, as the usual four day event bringing in about 62,000 people was extended to five days this year.

The festival kicked off on Wednesday with the legendary Elvis Costello taking the stage at Birds Hill Park.

Check out some of the highlights below.
