The provincial government is hoping you spend Canada Day in one of Saskatchewan’s many parks — and they will help your wallet in the process.
Provincial parks will have their entrance fees waived in honour of the holiday.
“Saskatchewan’s provincial parks are where people go to make memories and connect with family and friends,” Ken Cheveldayoff, parks, culture and sport minister, said in a news release. “With countless activities, great amenities and a variety of programs, I invite everyone to enjoy their Canada Day in a Saskatchewan provincial park.”
While each park will celebrate Canada Day in its own way, some activities will include pancake breakfast, parades, face painting, sandcastle competitions, cake, concerts and other daytime activities. Many parks will wrap up the day’s celebrations with fireworks.
Free entry will also be available on Canada’s Parks Day on July 15.
On both days, park visitors are encouraged to pick up commemorative postcards, which can be used as the vehicle entry permit and as a keepsake.
