In an area known as “Coulomb” the Coulombs, a former British colony, are making an appearance at the downtown Winnipeg Convention Centre as part of their annual convention.
The event has been a long time coming, and has been running for about a year, but it’s finally happening and has attracted quite a few people from across the globe.
“We’re hoping to have about 40 people from different countries come and enjoy the city,” said Julie Coulum, who runs the event, which is being hosted by the Winnipeg Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The Winnipeg Convention & Visitors Bureau said the event has attracted about 300 people from about 80 countries and territories since it began in 2011.
The group’s event, called the Coumbracast, is a celebration of the Couls and the history of the region and the people who came to settle in Manitoba.
It is also a fundraiser for the Manitoba Museum of History.
“It’s the largest convention in the world,” said Sarah Gorman, who works for the museum and organizes the event.
“This is a huge fundraiser for our museum, and it’s a way to raise awareness of the history and culture of the area.”
The Couloms are also trying to attract the younger generations.
“I think it’s really important to have a fun time,” said Danielle, who was born and raised in Winnipeg.
“To have a good time and not feel guilty.
I don’t think that’s the best way to make friends.
I think that the best thing is to have fun, have a laugh and have a nice time.”
Some people are looking forward to seeing the Coullombs again.
“For me, it’s kind of a rite of passage to go to Winnipeg and meet the Coulflomb.
I just hope I get to see them again,” said Emily.
Emily said she’s excited to see the Couliams again.
She said it’s always nice to see a community that is so open-minded and that is really welcoming.
“They have a very strong sense of community,” she said.
“They’re very welcoming.
It’s a real community here.”
