Monday is the day to reflect on the weekend and look ahead to another exciting week. For some people is the day to prepare for a dreaded week. Either way, Regina was at its best on Saturday and Sunday.
First off the a nice market downtown coincided with the annual Easter Seals Drop Zone fundraiser at Hill Centre II. Several participants from Saskatoon, Prince Albert Regina and everywhere in between made the trek into the Queen City to repel down Regina’s tallest building for a great cause, which is to help send children with disabilities to summer camp. It was incredible windy on Saturday (just ask our street team members Jade and Leila) so the drop was postponed until Sunday morning, which proved to be a fantastic day for it. The biggest overall fundraisers were Daniel Westfield and Caitlyn Engebretson who raised $5,500 for the event!
Civic pride was alive and well on Saturday as well when Mosaic Stadium hosted I Love Regina Day. Residents and families played on the bouncy castles, threw footballs around on the the beautiful Mosaic turf and enjoyed food. Mayor Fougere was on hand and the Rider stores were busy!
On top of all this, the Diner on Mainstreet and Highway 1 in Balgonie hosted several classic cars from Regina and area on Saturday. This was the fifth year they hosted the event and what a beautiful day to check out some awesome rides. Thanks to Dick out in Balgonie for putting on a grand event!
Sunday saw the Great Saskatchewan Mustard Festival take place at Wascana Park. All things mustard where served up to over 1,500 visitors!
So, have a great week ahead and don’t forget to view today’s solar eclipse safely!
