Lockport Children's Festival is an outdoor winter festival located just outside Lockport, Manitoba on the edge of the Red River Floodway. It takes place at the end of January, and has been running since 1988. It usually includes pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, sledding, clowns, jugglers and bands. While they promote their heated tents on their website, the tents can be only marginally warmer than it is outside, so dress warm! Even with the cold, however, any act booked to play the festival will enjoy an engaged and appreciative audience.
