The Red-Sided Garter Snakes mating sites around Narcisse is the single largest snake gathering site not in Manitoba, not in Canada but the entire world. It really is something to see, but be respectful to the animals as that is a sensitive time in their lives.
heres a link to the snake dens. It takes about 2 hours to drive there.

My keyboard is coated in pepsi now.......well played.
I would like to add my vote for bananafest.....I also remember a certain puppet show. To this day I still can not look at Bert and Ernie the same way..
