Here are a few events taking place this weekend downtown:
This throwback to the early days of rock ‘n roll wraps this weekend after a celebrated run at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. On December 4, 1956, Sun Records Founder Sam Phillips caught lightning in a bottle when he gathered rock ‘n’ roll royalty for an impromptu jam session. That night, four music legends – Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins – made recording history as the Million Dollar Quartet.
Monster Jam® is the most action-packed live event on four wheels where world-class drivers compete in front of capacity crowds in both monster truck racing and freestyle competitions. Monster Jam features the most recognizable trucks in the world including Grave Digger, Max-D, El Toro Loco, Monster Mutt and many more.
