Manitoba Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee and his wife Anita Lee will host their annual New Year’s levee this afternoon at the Manitoba legislature.
From 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., the public can take in complimentary sleigh rides around the legislature grounds. Members of the Manitoba Living History Society and the United Empire Loyalists Association will attend the levee in heritage costume. Entertainment will include a traditional Chinese lion dance and performances by Renaissance Voices, the Westwood Community Band and the Winnipeg Police Service Choir.
A collection box to accept donations of canned and non-perishable food items for Winnipeg Harvest will be located in the front lobby of the legislature.
All activities are weather permitting.
