The Battlefords Provincial Park set out to entertain hundreds of visitors Saturday evening in celebration of Parks Day, a celebration of Canada’s great outdoors.
Parks Day, also known as Take a Hike Day, takes place at provincial and federal parks Canada-wide on the third Saturday of July each year, encouraging people to hit the trails and report their kilometres to each respective park.
While the Battlefords Provincial Park didn’t have any formal hikes planned, visitors were still encouraged to plan their own adventure and participate nonetheless.
The day was capped off with live entertainment provided by Saskatchewan Express, a touring song and dance troupe consisting of Saskatchewan based talent.
Prior to the show, Jackie Starling, park manager of the Battlefords Provincial Park, said she had seen the group perform in the past and praised their song and dance routines.
“They’re just a great, enthusiastic group with lots of energy and great talent,” she said.
The group put on a performance that celebrated Canada 150 with acts outlining historical moments in Canadian history such as how the nation got its name, and the establishment of the RCMP.
