Brandon, Manitoba is the second largest city in Manitoba.  It was incorporated back in 1882 and started out as a major junction for the Canadian Pacific Railway.  The people of Brandon are probably the most friendly bunch of people that I have ever come into contact with.  This is really a place that will make you feel like you are at home.  If you check out the Riverbank Discovery Centre off of Conservation Drive you can hit up their visitor center inside.  They will have pretty much all the information you could need about what local events are going on over the next few days.
