Default Winnipeg Folklorama

Hi
wondering if anyone from here is taking part or planning on attending the United Kingdom Pavilion or any of the other 42 folklorama pavilions?
For those that don't know the festival is to

Celebrate life and culture with world-class entertainment, delicious authentic food and beautiful cultural displays at Folklorama, the largest and longest-running multicultural festival of its kind in the world (as determined in 2010 by CIOFF, the International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Arts). Explore one of the most vibrant arts and culture scenes found in the heart of the continent during the first two weeks of August. Join friends and family and experience the world’s cultures in Winnipeg from August 2 to 15, 2015.

I think Folkorama was the inspiration for Regina's Mosaic Festival which started in 1977 or 78, but this looks bigger and runs over twice as long. I like that sort of festival but hate standing in line (and am not rich) so I'd probably be inclined to choose only a handfull of pavillions to visit.

Driving up this weekend from Ottawa to visit the OH's parents, who live in East St Paul, so will probably take in a few shows while we're there. We visited a few pavilions a few years ago, it's a great festival!
