Manitoba Lieutenant Governor Philip Lee, with wife Anita, are hosting the annual New Year’s levee on Wednesday.
Complimentary sleigh rides will be offered around the legislative grounds, weather permitting, and members of the Manitoba Living History Society and the United Empire Loyalists Association will attend in heritage costume. Entertainment will include the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band and Winnipeg Police Service Choir, followed by a traditional Chinese lion dance and performances by the Winnipeg Youth Chorus and the Great-West Life Holiday Choir and Manitoba Electric Chords Choir.
Donations of canned and non-perishable food in support of Winnipeg Harvest will be collected.
The public event runs from 2:30-4 p.m. at the Manitoba Legislature.
