On May 1st in 1957, the Bridge Drive-In slid open their serving windows for the first time and created a FROZEN FRENZY in Winnipeg's Elm Park neighbourhood. In 1974, its namesake bridge (already a community landmark itself for over 60 years at that point) was closed to vehicular traffic, solidifying BDI as a scenic destination of choice for Winnipeggers to enjoy their favourite frozen treats for decades to come.
As you may already know, BDI's signature treat is the famous Goog, which is spun upside down before handing it off. This time-honoured test proves the Goog's delicious thickness, keeping the spoon straight and the taste buds thankful. And the quality doesn’t stop there! Justin and Jessica Jacob both continue to keep classic treat-making traditions alive and well throughout the menu, boasting more signature sundaes, the Creamiest Shake in Winnipeg, and 11 soft serve flavours of ice cream. But even though classic treats never go out of style, this family-owned business is always looking forward. They pulled out all the stops when they unveiled the GOOG TO GO truck in 2016, which gets around town in delicious style.
With their 60th Anniversary happening in the summer of 2017, Electra Sign was asked to update their original signage while blending some new creations in at the same time, including a custom-sculpted LED ice cream cone, and a red light strip pinpointing where to line up for a taste of tradition. Along with a refresh on the street sign, menu boards and awnings – its good to go for decades more!
Enjoy the summer and bring your friends and family down for some great tastes soon. The menu is large and the staff is ready to create some memories for you to enjoy!

What began as an urban renewal project in 1960 has to this day remained the center of attention in Manitoba's arts & culture community. The Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation is the overseer of Centennial Concert Hall, Manitoba Museum, The Planetarium, and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (and more)! The MCCC stands proud among the finest of Canada’s cultural organizations.
On October 1, 1965, the shovels first hit the ground for a concept that would house incredible programs under the MCCC umbrella of performing arts. Three years later, Centennial Concert Hall opened its doors. Professionals from all over Canada worked together to create this landmark, $8 million, 253,014 square foot building; a venue that would go on to host some of the world's most talented performers in the following decades.
In 2007, Electra Sign was tasked with creating a sign structure that would complement the surrounding buildings, draw visual attention to the area, and further create awareness for the programs offered. Now, more than a decade later, our crew returned to Centennial Concert Hall to upgrade the sign's electronic messaging centre, replacing the previously installed 16mm model with the latest high-resolution 12mm model from Watchfire Signs. The difference in picture quality has to be seen to be believed, but ease-of-use received an upgrade as well! Less than a day after installation had concluded, Gerry McDougal (Manager, Marketing and I.T.) had the Concert Hall's messages brilliantly displayed for all of Winnipeg's passersby to see.
With amazing shows, exhibits, and more for the whole family to enjoy – visit Centennial Concert Hall and the entire Manitoba Centennial Centre and learn more about the many venues offered. Located in the heart of the city, access is simple via bus, bike, car, or take a walk and enjoy the upcoming celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday along the way!

While watching the Super Bowl in February 2012, Alan Castell had an idea to make technology work better for people and Bruce was listening. Together, they formed alpha technologies and turned Alan’s garage into a secure hi-tech digital centre, inking their first deal in May of the same year.
This vision has allowed these friends to enter into their 6th successful year, focusing on Full IT management, VoIP, access systems/security and now entering the field of 3D printing technology for businesses of all kinds.
The need arose to move into a new location, one more suitable for their expanding operations. Wanting to draw eyes towards their gorgeous new offices, the call to Electra Sign was made, and our team responded with a unique design that was manufactured and installed May 2017. The crown jewel is the custom spinning LED logo, but our careful craftsmanship and beautiful LED lighting is on display throughout the whole sign. We hope it serves them well as their business continues to flourish.
