It is usually much quieter at the Ronald McDonald house in Saskatoon but Saturday afternoon it was an excited sea of green.
Rider players and the Grey Cup itself made their first stop during the Saskatoon tour at the house which provides accommodation for families of sick children traveling to Saskatoon to receive medical care.
"We have had a long standing relationship with the Riders which is awesome. Probably 28 years of friendship," said director of family and volunteer services Marceline Zimmer.
Christmas lights are shining bright at Regina City Hall with the annual ‘Light the Lights’ tradition on Tuesday night marking the start to the festive season.
Mayor Michael Fougere shared the job of switching on the lights with a little girl all bundled up in the cold.
Christmas carols soothed the crowd in the cold as the lights went on but some kids almost spilled their hot chocolate when a certain man in red showed up. Kids quickly lined up to tell Santa what they want for Christmas.

Michael Flegel can still remember the 1966 Grey-Cup win for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was eight years old and has been a fan of the green and white ever since.
“I guess I kind of just grew up with the green. I don’t know every different,” Flegel said as he watched the Riders go for their fourth title on Sunday.
He was watching the game with most of his family at his step-daughter’s Cathedral-neighbourhood home.
Vienna Di Ruscio hosted about two dozen of her family members, along with her partner Jason Breker.
The North Pole came to Saskatoon Sunday as the Santa Claus Parade made its way down the inner-city streets.
Throngs of children, parents and the young at heart lined the streets to get a glimpse of jolly old Saint Nick.

You don’t have to get a letter from Hogwarts or go to Diagon Alley to go find a witch shop. In fact, there is one in Regina.
The store is unremarkable from the outside, inconspicuous among the other businesses, and people driving by giving it the cursory once over would never know all the tools for witchcraft can be found inside.
On any given day, dozens of people drive by the innocuous white, square building along Innovation Boulevard on the University of Saskatchewan campus.
The sign outside reads Canadian Light Source and the building, with its large, road-facing windows may not stand out among university architecture.
The young canine who was found, rescued, and cared for by Regina police officers now has a home with one of them.
On Thanksgiving weekend, Cst. Cory Longhurst found the dog in an alley behind the 1600 block of Toronto St. "Copper", as he was later named, was bleeding; his back leg cut down to the bone.
Copper was rushed to a 24-hour vet clinic on Victoria Ave. Without an owner, nobody could be called upon to pay for treatment. Without payment, Copper would be put down.
The Regina Pats winning streak has now reached five games thanks to a 3-2 overtime win over the Medicine Hat Tigers.
The game Friday was probably the best of the Pats five game winning streak and it featured a little bit of everything. It was mostly a wide open affair as both teams combined for 76 shots on net but both goalies were up to the task of keeping it close. Tigers goalie Marek Langhammer made 42 saves in a losing effort and Dawson MacAuley matched him with 29 saves of his own.
Gigantic plumes of smoke coming from a farmyard 16 kilometers north of Regina could easily be seen from the city Tuesday afternoon.
A wildfire was sparked in a field of stubble, and driven east by heavy winds towards a nearby farmhouse.
The fire scorched a field of stubble and claimed a few bales just meters away from the house. Regina fire crews and local farmers worked to contain it, saving the structures in the yard for the most part.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
