MANITOBA HYDRO WARM UP YOUR BELLY SOUP COOK-OFF

MAKE ALLEY ART
The name Holiday Alley was inspired by the alleys and passageways that lead from our side streets to the main drag. Imagine those alleys, the sidewalks and the entire street filled with light, art, sound and creativity. Join our Alley Way Funk team and turn an alley into your canvas or stage. info@holidayalley.ca
