2015 November 103rd Grey Cup, Winnipeg

GSB_Canada-00117-20151129_SquamishLast weekend we went with a group of good friends to our 10th Grey Cup, that was held in Winnipeg this year. The 103th edition of the Grey Cup (one of North America’s oldest championships) was between the Edmonton Eskimo’s and the Ottawa Red Blacks, and was eventually won by Edmonton.  This was the second Grey Cup we’ve been to in Winnipeg and as always it was a lot of fun. Winnipeg put on a great show, right from the  warm welcome at the airport to all the events that were held throughout the city.  In addition to Grey Cup festivities, Winnipeg has a lot to offer – we had time to take in the amazing Museum of Human Rights, a spectacular building built at the junction of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers in downtown Winnipeg.  We also visited the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada which features a collection of planes that helped  open up the Canadian north – definitely worth a visit.  A few photos of the weekend can be seen here.
