FREE PANCAKE BREAKFAST AT THE EX AND SAFE CRUISE PARADE

For our second and final day in Manitoba, the Odyssey makes a stop at The Ex in central Winnipeg for a free pancake breakfast offered by the Khartum Shriners. In this huge amusement park set up for the summer, more than 5000 people come to enjoy the delicious breakfast, and while they wait in line we hand out pamphlets, give tattoos to young children and spread the word about the Odyssey, while the Khartum Komedian clowns play some tricks. The families are happy!

In the evening, we take part in Safe Cruise, a tour-parade across the city to promote safe driving. Our local Shrine patients Melanie and Spencer take part in the event. The tour of the city ends at Pony Corral where we see some nice old cars.
