Long weekend plans are the best! The extra day off means you can make better travel plans without feeling so rushed. Luckily we live in a gorgeous country with some of the best parks in the world. You take the two and combine them and its a perfect long weekend. This weekend, entry to all Manitoba Provincial Parks is free. From Friday, Sept. 4 until Monday, Sept. 7, residents will not need park vehicle permits at provincial parks, but regular camping fees will still be in place.
