Southwest residents can head out to Cypress Hills, Buffalo Pound, the Saskatchewan Landing, or one of the other 15 provincial parks this weekend for a series of activities to celebrate Canada Day.

Families and visitors are invited to wear red and white tomorrow for games, triathlon, treats, and more available at the various Saskatchewan parks.

Alison Nagy, manager of Visitor Experiences and Public Programming with Saskatchewan Parks, encourages families, friends, and anyone looking for something to do to head outside for some family-friendly fun.

"We have a full weekend of events and programs that are happening between Saturday, June 29 and Monday, July 1," she said. "Our main Canada Day events this year are happening tomorrow between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m." 

A few of Sunday's activities will include Geocaching, watercolour painting, fairy house building, crafts, family game night, and more at various parks. 

Monday will feature Canada Day crafts and picnic games at the Saskatchewan Landing. 

"All of our activities are free with a valid park entry permit for your vehicle," said Nagy. "So it's a really affordable way for families to get out, whether they're camping for the weekend, just looking for a day trip, or wanting to get out and explore nature."
