August in Saskatoon

posted by My Saskatoon    |   August 22, 2014 10:37

Saskatoon is truly a city that thoroughly enjoys its summer!  As residents of the downtown area, we’ve had the pleasure of living right in the middle of some of Saskatoon’s summer events.  What a treat to cook dinner with the background music of Jazz Fest’s Ms. Lauryn Hill coming in through our windows!

June and July were fantastic but I’m realizing that Saskatoon saves some of the best for last. This has been my first August in Saskatoon, and boy am I impressed!  

The first nine days of the month, the Fringe Festival was in full swing on Broadway Avenue!  My husband and I visited on a few occasions – taking in the crafts, the artwork, and of course, the street theatre (zombie newlyweds!). 

We also visited the Saskatoon ‘EX’, enjoying mini donuts, a free concert by Walk Off the Earth, and Safeway Kidsville. We don’t have kids of our own, but it sure was fun watching little ones going on rides or petting ponies in the petting zoo!  

My personal favourite was the President’s Choice SuperDogs.  If you haven’t seen this dog show, you must!  I don’t know what it is about dogs doing tricks or racing through obstacle courses but the crowd literally went wild – including me!  I can’t remember the last time I laughed that hard. I probably would have been embarrassed, but, like I said, the whole crowd was wild! 

 

Sadly, we weren’t able to make it to Folkfest, but I hear it’s another great August event, and I’m already looking forward to the PotashCorp Fireworks Festival on August 29-30.

Of course, it’s always sad when summer ends, but I hear that Saskatoon is beautiful in the fall!
