    Ah, darn, I wish someone would have told you earlier about the Woodman school Winterfest. On March 5th, 11am-4pm, at 8706 Elbow Drive SW: there will be Indigenous drumming, food trucks, Carnaval games, student art on silent auction and more. Free entry, and all funds raised go to support the playground build for the school.
