Canada Day weekend can be a challenge to plan in Saskatoon. With so much going on, it’s difficult to choose where you want to be. There are plenty of things happening in the city, so stick around!
This year, I’m making an effort to find a little something for you well in advance. Some events are free, but require advance registration. Others require a ticket to attend. So get ready to take in some live music, festivals, and fireworks. And don’t forget your sunscreen!
