This summer, the best throwers in Canada will descend on the town of Whitewood to compete in the 2018 Canadian Horseshoe Championships. It’s no surprise for Saskatchewan to play host to the event, as the sport often sees success in the province. Last year’s men’s division winner, Colin Finnie, hails from Kenaston and has earned 12 national titles throughout his playing career. The competition will play out over four days at the Whitewood Community Centre. Aug. 15–18 Fish On! Things will get a little fishy on Tobin Lake in July at the annual Walleye Championship. Ranked as one of the top fishing spots in North America, it’s not uncommon to pull out 10-pounders on a day A Real Barn Burner The weekly farmer’s market five kilometres north of Moose Mountain Provincial Park is housed inside a quaint venue: an iconic red Saskatchewan barn. There’s something for everyone at the Red Barn Market, including baked goods, jams and jellies from local ven- dors. You’ll also find artistic offerings that could include the likes of handcrafted keepsake pens carved from wooden items. Musical entertainment on the out- door stage beneath the barn loft provides the perfect soundtrack for locals and vis- itors to while away a Sunday afternoon. Good Eats The Regina Farmers’ Market boasts some of the freshest locally grown and handmade products you can get in the province. The food-lover’s paradise, in business for 43 years, was once voted one of the top 10 markets in Canada by Destination Canada. From Saskatoon berry caramel popcorn by POP!ed Paradise to Saskatchewan- harvested rice in Rusty’s organic wild rice pancake mix, it’s easy to see why RFM remains a hot spot for foodies. And don’t forget to check out the occasional Market Under the Stars evenings (dates to be announced), for more tastes and tunes of the city. EATing & DRinKing
