Winnipeg’s Transcona neighbourhood doesn’t look half bad for being 100-years-old — and the party is just beginning.
From a small town in 1912 to a large suburb on the eastern edge of the city, the celebrations will officially begin at 11:30 a.m. today.
Dignitaries will gather at the Transcona Legion Branch 7 on Regent Avenue, where the old CN whistle will blow at noon.
The anniversary will continue the weekend of June 1, 2 and 3 in conjunction with the Hi Neighbour Festival featuring more rides and activities along with the largest parade in Transcona history.
More than 33,000 Winnipeggers currently call Transcona home.
