It’s exhibition time in Regina! The Queen City Ex runs from July 30 to Aug. 3, but there’s plenty happening today to kick off the event:
- A Strawberry Social takes place at the downtown City Square Plaza today from 11:30-1:00, featuring Regina’s own Rory Allen. Hot dogs, strawberry shortcake, coffee and lemonade will be on sale, and all proceeds benefit Special Olympics Canada.
- A parade starts at 7:00 PM at Cameron Street and Dewdney Avenue, heads east to Broad Street, goes south to Broadway Ave., and concludes at the Tartan Curling Club.
- Fireworks will cap the day at dusk in Wascana Park.
All of this before the Ex even officially begins!
Exhibitions deliver plenty of punch for kids. Cotton candy, candy apples and thrilling rides, oh my! I certainly have fond memories of food, friends and fun. It’s the one time of year that we, as kids, got to indulge in those mouth-watering mini-donuts!
There’s also plenty for seniors to see and do, including tons of commercial exhibits at the Credit Union EventPlex, singers, dancers, jugglers and contortionists at the Prairie Mobile Arena, and great food and exciting entertainment during the noon-hour at the F.W. Hill Mall downtown.
Don’t leave home without rain gear, bug spray and sunscreen … staples for any summer event in Regina. Good walking shoes are also a must.
More information is available on the Queen City Ex website.
Happy summer! And have a great time at this year’s Queen City Ex!
