Oh boy! This week will be especially hard to decide what fun activities you and your friends and family will do. This week there will be tons of live music and festivals, yoga classes, park interpreters and so much more!
Richard Nadolsky Live!
August 14 – The Listening Room – Lac du Bonnet
Richard Nadolsky is a musical contrivance of the highest order. His music moves through him with a passion and drives like no other as if he himself becomes the instrument delivering song after song until his soul is empty and the audiences’ is filled up.
There is no genre to describe Nadolsky’s music. If we were to make one up, it would be Whimsical Manitobaman with a hint of True Grit and Hardcore Passion for the art.

August 17 – Grunthal
CWHA is an open club in every way. It is open to all horses, to all ages of people and to all riding abilities. CWHA has been the tie that binds the new horse lovers to old experienced ones. It is a family club where friendships are made so that each show has the feeling of a reunion.
The club promotes good horsemanship skills, proper show etiquette and good sportsmanship. Many of the more experienced members are more than willing to help out the less experienced riders at the shows. We try to sponsor clinics to allow members, both youth and adult, to learn new skills and build on their existing riding knowledge.
