BRIT'S PICKS: Top things to see and do this weekend

Let our CBC arts reporter Britainy Robinson help you plan your weekend.

Plenty to see and do in Regina and Saskatoon

Our arts reporter Britainy Robinson has some ideas on what you should do this weekend for a little fun.

Regina and Area

All Grown Up

Get ready to 'MMMBop' the night away with a '90s favourite. Hanson is a trio of brothers that hit it big with songs like "Where's The Love" and "Weird".

Although they haven't been a mega hit that entire time, Hanson has continued to work and make music.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac even sidelined in the world of microbrewery with their signature beer Mmmhops.

Hanson is set to take the stage this weekend in Regina.

Hanson is back to doing what they love and are bringing the Anthem World Tour to Saskatchewan for a pair of shows.

The first is Friday night at Casino Regina. The group will then head to the Odeon Event Centre in Saskatoon on Tuesday.

A cool feature to the tour is the afternoon before every show, the guys meet outside the venue at 3 p.m. They head out on a mile-long walk to support the fight against poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa.

One for the Lil' Pumpkins

If you have a little girl that loves princesses, you'll find it hard to refuse this party.

For the past four years, Pumpkin Hollow has held the Pumpkin Princess Pageant.

This is a day for girls to get dressed up in their favourite princess costume and have a chance to meet Penelope the Pumpkin Princess herself.

There will also be spooky stories and a tea party.

Pumpkin Hollow is just a short drive outside Regina on Highway 11 near Lumsden.

Plenty of activities and fun for all at the Pumpkin Hollow.

Bump 'N' Grind

It's your chance to boogie, oogie, oogie your way to fun.

McNally's Tavern is the place to be for DJ Baby Daddy's Sexy Retro Dance Party.

You can groove to hits from the '70s and '80s.

If you want an extra fun night out with friends, why not dress up and celebrate your inner dancing queen?

The event is Sunday night at McNally's Tavern in Regina.

Saskatoon and Area

Girl Power

Are you looking for the latest trends in home decor? Need some fashion or makeup tips?

Get your girlfriends together and head down to Credit Union Centre for Woman's World.

This is an annual event that celebrates women in all our commercial glory.

Clothing, health care, fitness, and jewelry, you can see it all and maybe take some of it home.

It's also a great place to sip a glass of wine and wander around with the gals.

Woman's World is Friday to Sunday in Saskatoon.

For Max

It was supposed to be the kickoff to another round of improvisational theatre.

There will still be plenty of laughs, but the No No's Improv Troupe is turning its first show of the season into a tribute to one of its founders.

Matthew (Max) Bembridge died this week after a brief battle with cancer. He was 36.

The No-No's have banded together to present a tribute show to raise money to help his family.

It's Friday night at the troupe's new venue, Le Relais, in Saskatoon.

Come early, they are expecting a full house.

Hot Licks/Cool Concert

If you want to be transported to a tropical beach and escape this Fall weather, I've got one for you.

Brazilian guitarist Celso Machado has performed all over the world and is now coming to Saskatoon.

Machado is known for his uncanny ability to mimic birds and sounds of the rain forest.

He's a teacher, composer and accomplished vocalist all rolled into one.

You can see Celso Machado on stage at the Bassment Saturday night.
