Riding Mountain National Park is planning a celebration to mark National Aboriginal Day on Saturday, June 21.
A traditional powwow, cultural demonstrations and workshops will begin at 10 a.m., but the main draw is the entertainment on deck.
Award-winning musicians Eagle & Hawk will hit the stage in Wasagaming at 1 p.m. Country musician Ray St. Germain will perform and be the master of ceremonies for the day, followed by 2013 Juno nominee Desiree Dorion.
“We are proud to showcase local and international talent celebrating aboriginal culture,” said Michaela Kent, superintendent of RMNP. “There is a full day of activities planned for people of all ages, so come on out, bring your lawn chair and enjoy the day in a great setting.”
Admission to the festivities is free.
The Clear Lake campground is open for the season and taking reservations to accommodate visitors to the area.
Riding Mountain is roughly 270 km northwest of Winnipeg.
