Canadian News – The Queen City on Canada 150: What to do – Regina #News in #Canada


Canada’s birthday is coming up Saturday and Regina has a lot to offer everyone on Canada Day.

There are four main locations where things will be happening on Canada Day:

Wascana Centre

There are activities going on all day at Wascana Centre, from 8:30 A.M. to 11:30 P.M. Some notable events include Colter Wall (6 P.M.), The Dead South (7:30 P.M.) and Marianas Trench (9 P.M.) all playing back-to-back-to-back on Main Stage.

At the Children’s Stage, there will be a Metis jigging performance at 1 P.M., Storybook Princesses at 1:40 P.M. and Safari Jeff at 4 P.M., just to name a few.

On the west side of the lake, there will be the Plywood Cup, with the parade beginning at 1:30 P.M. and the race beginning at 2 P.M.

A Strongman Competition will take place from 1-4:30 P.M. on Legislative drive as well.

There is also an old time fair going on on the North Side, with everything from cosplay, to hide tanning demonstrations, to yard Jenga. That is on from 1 P.M. to 6. The stage on the North Side will be home to a watermelon eating contest at 1 P.M., then alternating between line dancing and the Youth in Harmony barbershop quartet.

The cultural village will be bursting with a ton of activities from 1:30-5:15 P.M. Chinese dancers, the Burundi/Yoruba community, the Somali community, the Ugandan community and the East Indian dance are some highlights from there.
