On Thursday August 15 the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Niagara Region Métis Council and MNO Healing and Wellness staff hosted the third annual Métis Fest at Club Richelieu in Welland.

Approximately 127 people attended the late afternoon and evening festivities. Activities included the Métis Voyageur Games which were facilitated by MNO Community Relations Manager Hank Rowlinson. The games as always were very well received. Equally popular was a fish fry that was enthusiastically consumed by everyone.
