The city just north of Winnipeg is organizing its own Selkirk Whiteout party on Manitoba Avenue East beginning at 5 p.m.
“Selkirk’s vision in revitalizing the downtown commercial core has been turning into a reality”, said city CAO Duane Nicol.
“We see events like this and the popular Holiday Alley that took place in December of 2017 as an opportunity to have Manitoba-Ave-East seen as a vibrant place for recreation, commerce and community building.”
The party will welcome Jets fans from all over with entertainment by R&R the Band, food vendors, and a big screen that will air the game Jets-Predators game at 7 p.m.
The city says Tuesday’s party is a one-time event to test the waters for potential future parties.
Selkirk Transit will extend service between 5-11 p.m. to run every half hour and is also offering a park and ride from Canadian Tire located at the west end of Manitoba Avenue.
