Get ready, Saskatchewan, we are boldly heading into the weekend. And to help us chart out a safe and enjoyable path to get us through, we've put together this list of happenings going on around the province, compiled by Saskatchewan Weekend host Eric Anderson.
Film nostalgia galore
In Regina and Saskatoon, Cineplex is holding the Great Digital Film Festival, starting Friday night and running until Feb. 11.
Film buffs and cinema newbies can check out Star Trek and many other classics like Ghostbusters, Mad Max 2, Dirty Harry and Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan. There'll also be more recent films like Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road.
All of the films have been remastered for digital theatres.
Head outdoors to ice sculpture festival
In Saskatoon, the Frosted Gardens festival is up and running at the back of the Bessborough hotel. The festival includes ice sculptures, an ice slide, games for the kids, a bar for the bigger kids and there's frozen mini golf, too.
The festival is open this weekend from noon to 10 p.m. CST. It's $5 dollars for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for kids.
Cheers, jumps and flips in Regina
It's going to be a loud Saturday at Regina's Conexus Arts Centre: it's hosting the Ice Breaker Cheerleading Competition.
This isn't the classic pompom on the sidelines type of cheerleading.
The elementary and high school teams that are competing are full-fledged athletes and they train for hours perfecting their routines. Think Roughriders' cheerleader routines.
The competition starts at 10:45 a.m. and runs until 6:45 p.m. on Saturday.
Provincial sports roundup
The WHL's Regina Pats host the Medicine Hat Tigers Friday at the Brandt Centre, while the Saskatoon Blades will host the Swift Current Broncos on Saturday night at the SaskTel Centre.
Friday night in Saskatoon, the Saskatchewan Rush lacrosse team will look to make it two wins in a row at home when they face the Calgary Roughnecks.
Sunday's big game
There's one big game Sunday night that will likely get a lot of eyballs: Super Bowl 50, played between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
The game kicks off at 6 p.m. CST
