Access Winnipeg has been out and about covering the two week festival of Folklorama. It is the largest cultural gathering in North America and a top tourist attraction.
The food at the Korean pavilion was very tasty and the action on the stage energetic. Demonstrations of Korean martial arts to music and the splitting of planks kept the crowd entertained. Drums and dance showed off the Korean arts.
