Fun Upcoming Events This Weekend!
Hey, guys! This weekend is loaded with fun events for you, your friends and family, and I hope to see you all there!
Kicking off the weekend this Friday is the 2nd Annual Gay Pride Event hosted at the lyric! It starts at 7pm with speakers, musical performances, and food and drinks! Admission is free.
Saturday is a busy day with the first Market Square of the season! Come out and get some fresh produce, check out the vendors, listen to some great music, AND give some puppies a kiss! Yes, you read that correctly. This saturday from 10am to 11am is the "Doggy Kissing Booth": only $2 a smooch and all proceeds go towards the Swift Current Dog Park.
Also on Saturday is the Mad Dash Event at 12pm hosted by the Southwest Newcomer Welcome Center. Basically, this event runs along the same lines as the Amazing Race (as seen on TV), and will begin at the Newcomer Welcome Center and then branching off to the city at large. Teams of five are made up, and each team must have players from more than one culture, more than one age group (open to all 12 and up), and both genders. However, folks are welcome to sign up individually and the organizers will put you into teams. The registration fee is $5.00 per person. It's a great way to meet new people, learn about the city, and have some fun while you're at it!
The Lyric Open Stage Summer Series begins at 8pm and runs until around midnight. Early bird drink discounts and headlining performance by local band Tombstone Whiskey.$5 admission. Come join us and celebrate our local talent!
Come see the kids race down the hill in their amazing soap box cars. Stop by the concessions at the top of the hill and buy some refreshments to support The Salvation Army!
Doc's Town Tea Room is hosting an event in honour of father's day! Bring dad out for a Sundae from 1pm to 4pm.
These are just a few of the events happening this weekend in Swift Current! Check out the events calendar for more details! I'll see you guys this weekend! :)
