Saskatoon & Area

Take a Hike
Are you looking to challenge you definition of theatre, do you like the outdoors? 
If so, this event is for you. 'Walk the Trail' is one part play, one part leisurely stroll.
Actors will perform a story that takes you back in time with the first settlers as they travelled out West.
The show will be staged alongside new public art by Jill Anholt in the park.
It takes 15 minutes and there are multiple shows. 
Just head to Patricia Roe Park on Friday and Saturday in Saskatoon.

Race Ready
They're little, fast and your kids are gonna love it.
The Saskatoon Association of Radio Control Auto Racers is hosting the Western Canadian Championship this weekend in the city.
It's for the kid and the kid at heart as these remote control cars take to the track.
Over 1200 entries are expected this year, there's a practise race Friday night then Saturday and Sunday the competition rages.
The best part about this, it's free for spectators.
You can see the races this weekend at the Cosmo Civic Centre.

Film for the Undead
Think of it as a warm up for Halloween.
Dust off your zombie mask and stumble on down to the Broadway Theatre this weekend for the fourth annual Dark Bridges Film Festival.
It's a showcase of dark films from all over the world. This year titles include 'Big Bad Wolves', 'Stitches' and 'The Apocalypse'.
It kicked off on Thursday night but there's still plenty of fun all weekend. The screenings run until Sunday night.
Don't panic if you run into the Zombie Walk being staged on Saturday afternoon.
Fans in full costume will groan their way from Kiwanis Park, up the Broadway Bridge and end up at the Broadway Theatre for a 7 o'clock screening of 'Night of the Living Dead'.

Regina & Area

Sexy Vegetables
Whether it's a peeled onion or ripe tomato, Swift Current poet Lorna Crozier saw the erotic in all kinds of produce.
'The Sex Lives of Vegetables' is a naughty musical jaunt through the garden. 
It's based on Crozier's poetry and features performances by David McIntyre and Heather Pawsey.
It's taking the stage for one night only and is part of Golden Apple Theatre's cabaret series.
The show will hit the stage Friday night at the Artesian.

Bang on the Drum All Day
It's a chance to march to the beat of your own drum and it all started as a dream for one Regina musician.
The Regina Drum Festival is back for a 3rd year.
Jason Brinkworth is a well known session drummer who's played with acts like Aaron Prichett and Deborah Cox and Aaron Lines.
But Brinkworth wasn't satisfied with just growing his own career, he wanted to bring the drums to the front of the stage with a yearly festival.
This year there will be drum clinics for all skill levels, a trade show and evening performances.
It runs Saturday and Sunday at various venues around the city.

Harvest Fun
It's a chance for the whole family to celebrate this glorious time of year. 
Under the Harvest Moon is a community heritage festival which will feature arts, crafts, storytelling and music.
Enjoy performances by spoken word artist Adam Smith, Fada Dance and Drumming and Fire Dancing by Tribal Vibes.
It's all happening in Maple Leaf Park as part of Culture Days, Saturday.
