Okay, so maybe history class wasn’t your favourite in high school, but maybe it could have been if drinks and prizes were involved. In honour of our first prime minister’s 199th birthday, Jeremy Diamond of the Vimy Foundation is challenging everyone to a rousing evening of Sir John A. Macdonald Birthday Trivia. Gather a team of up to six people, or be grouped with other participants upon arrival. The questions will cover more than just Macdonald’s life, so study up on your Canadian history!
The Whippersnapper Gallery has a new outdoor exhibit ready for display, and it can’t wait to share it with you.

Music and projections will set the scene for a dance party, while viewing booths will provide more immersive video experiences.
