La Vérendrye - The Forks

A historical reenactment is carried out of French-Canadian explorer Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de La Vérendrye’s arrival at The Forks on Sunday, September 29, 2013. The flashback to Manitoba’s early fur trade history was accompanied by musket fire from soldiers of La Compagnie de la Vérendrye. The event marked the 275th anniversary of Fort Rouge. (HANDOUT)
