Britainy Robinson picks her Top 3 events for Regina and Saskatoon.

Saskatoon & Area

He's Back!

After wowing a sold out crowd in Saskatoon last Summer at the Jazz Festival, Dallas Green is back.

Green, who tours under the stage name City and Colour, has been celebrated for his latest album, 'The Hurry and the Harm'.

This is the same haunting ballads and tender love tributes audiences have come to love him for.

It's the biggest tour so far for the 33-year-old singer-songwriter who is stopping at arenas across the country.

Couples will sway along to City and Colour in Saskatoon on Sunday night. A few tickets are still available. The show is at Credit Union Centre.

Playtime Puppets

The fuzzy ones are at it again.

The puppets are ready to play in Saskatoon this weekend. (

Wide Open Children's Theatre is bringing out their whole cast of puppet players for an original story.

The Elves and the Shoemaker takes familiar fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters on a wild ride.

In this show, a little boy named Sam tries to solve all of the other character's problems, without the help of the narrator.

Will they find their happy ending? You have many chances to find out, with one hour and half hour performances available.

It's fun for the whole family at the Refinery from Friday to Monday in Saskatoon.

She's a Fighter

Her songs are built out of hard times.

Neko Case is known both as a solo artist and for her contributions to the Canadian indie group The New Pornographers.

Case released a new album last fall, 'The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You', which was written after Case suffered the death of her parents and her grandmother.

She's been bouncing all over North America and this weekend is bringing her music to Saskatoon.

The show is at O'Brians Event Centre on Sunday.

Regina & Area

Prehistoric Fun

If you have a little one enamoured with giant beasts that roamed the Earth 65 million years ago, you're going to want to head to the Saskatchewan Science Centre this weekend. 

The dinosaurs are taking over the Saskatchewan Science Centre this Summer. (

Dinosaurs Unearthed is a new exhibit that explores the world of the dinosaurs by letting people get up close to them.

This exhibit features real dinosaur fossils, life-sized animatronic replicas and plenty of info on the Mesozoic era.

The coolest part is the public can actually use tablets to make the animals move themselves.

The exhibit opens Saturday in Regina and runs until September 28.

Hip-Hop Happening

They've been at it since 1989 and are still making music and going strong. 

Hip Hop duo Atmosphere stops in Regina this weekend. (

Atmosphere is a hip-hop duo out of the United States featuring producer 'Ant' Anthony Davis and MC 'Slug' Sean Daley.

The group has released it's eighth studio album, 'Southsiders'.

The artists call it very introspective as they tried to push the boundaries of indie rap.

You can check out Atmosphere on Sunday night at The Exchange in Regina.

Neighbours' Celebration

Film, dance, theatre, and visual art — just a smattering of what you can experience at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.

The week-long celebration is the first festival of the Spring-Summer season and it all kicks off on Monday.

The party starts at 10 a.m. CST with an attempt to set the world record for the most people singing along to Joni Mitchell's iconic song 'Big Yellow Taxi'.

There will be live music by artists like Megan Nash, Indigo Joseph and The Midnight Roses.

Take the kids to Funville for crafts and face paint. There's so much to do I can't possibly include it all.

The Cathedral Village Arts Festival runs until next Sunday in Regina.
