DescriptionTwo rival fur-trading companies—the North West Co. and the Hudson's Bay Co.—set up shop on the Morris River in 1801. Not until 1874 did a permanent settlement take hold; incorporation took place in 1883. Both the town and the river on which it grew were named for Alexander Morris, the second lieutenant governor of Manitoba during the 1870s.
You’ll enjoy fair favorites including entertainment, exhibits, fair food and midway rides at the Manitoba Stampede and Exhibition in mid-July. Highlights include the heart-pounding action of a seven event pro rodeo, and chuck wagon and chariot racing. Kids can take part in the action at the mutton busting and the pig scramble.
