King Korn Maze

Have you ever had your boss message you frantically about Giant Jenga? Until yesterday, I’d have said the same thing. You see, I received a message about King Korn Maze. A family-run corn maze that also features a lot of fun game. (Like Giant Jenga.) Needless to say, I had…

RJ Visits Portage la Prairie

This was a personal one for me. I’ve been asked when I was going to cover Portage again, and the answer to that, is NOW. Rotary Republic of Manitobah Park (yes, that is its full name) is one of my favourite places in Portage. Not just because I’m a sports…

RJ Visits Notre Dame de Lourdes

Notre Dame de Lourdes, you are one cool, little town. A group of us hit up the corn maze before heading to Notre Dame, and it was quite the trip. Rather than drive around the community looking for photo opportunities, we went walking. It was a blast. The architecture in…

RJ Visits Holland

CONGRATULATIONS HOLLAND! It was a super close vote, but Hollanders came out strong at the end! Driving into town, I immediately stopped by the Tiger Hills Arts Association building. Remember, my goal is to show people what they can see regardless of what time of day they go. You’ll have…

RJ Visits Clearwater

CONGRATULATIONS CLEARWATER! It was a close vote, and we will definitely have to cover Pilot Mound at a later date, but for now, we focus on Clearwater. My first time in the community was a fun one. I had read a little bit on the town, but I did not…

RJ Goes Mini Golfing

Good news for fans of mini-golf: the new Holland mini-golf course is a ton of fun. I convinced a few of my co-workers to come out to check it out earlier this week, and we had a blast. It’s an eighteen hole course with a nineteenth hole (or hole zero)…

RJ Visits Carman

A lot of people are taking in the town of Carman this weekend as the fair celebrates 140 years. While you’re there, drive around and take in the beauty. (Photo #1!) As I headed downtown, I took note of the “Shop”, “Dine”, “Play” and “Live” signs. Simple, yet clever. Without…
