Trade Show Wares

If you like wandering around checking out the merchandise and seeing artist work, firearms, antiques and jewellery, head over to Prairieland Park.

The Saskatoon Collector's Show is the largest of it's kind on the prairies. Outdoor enthusiasts will be there to check it out on Friday and Saturday.

Just a hop, skip and a jump away in another hall at Prairieland is the Taboo: Naughty But Nice Sex Show.

Taboo pushes the boundaries of erotic fun ingerie, boudoir photography, body paint and more.

Diana Panton is an award winning vocalist and has her masters in French literature. She's a class act and has been on a bit of a tour through Saskatchewan in the last couple of weeks. This weekend, she caps it off with a show at the Bassment.

Panton is bringing her band along with her. This show is featuring songs from Panton's new release, Red, and is filled with standards by artist's like Cole Porter and the Gerswhin brothers.

The best part about this show is that it's an all ages one, so bring the family. That's Saturday night at the Bassment.
