Thousands of red-shirted Winnipeggers filled Portage and Main to create a giant maple leaf in the city’s historic intersection on a historic Canada Day.

The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ estimates 3,600 people participated.

“This year, for the first time ever, we’re bringing the Canada Day Living Maple Leaf to the iconic Portage and Main intersection as we come together to celebrate Canada 150, our country, our city and our downtown,” said Downtown Winnipeg BIZ executive director Stefano Grande.
