Top 5 Fall Activities For the Family

September 18th, 2018 by

Fall is a weird time in Saskatchewan, especially in Regina. Who are we kidding? All the seasons are weird and unpredictable in this province! Anyway, we want to showcase some fun activities for the whole family to enjoy during this sweater-weather fall season in the Land of the Living Skies.

5. Corn Maiden Market

Obviously, this is tops on our list. This is a must-see place that tons of families across Saskatchewan visit every fall. If you’re new to the province or if you’ve simply never been, the Corn Maiden Market is located on a farm near Lumsden, SK and is about a 30-minute drive from Regina.

This place is THE place to go for your fall pictures. The scenery is unbeatable, plus there’s usually fun activities to take part in.

  1. Corn Maze
  2. Pumpkin patch
  3. Hay wagon rides
  4. Pony rides
  5. Petting farm
  6. Penelope the Pumpkin Princess
  7. Hay jump
  8. So much more!

An extra bonus: There are some cool greenhouses to check out in the area where you could probably find some delicious harvest veggies.

4. OktoberKinderFest

This is a unique addition to the list, but definitely, some cool things to check out for the entire family. This event is on October 20 (a Saturday) at 2 PM and it’s being hosted at the most fitting venue: The German Club!

Saskatchewan is full of German history and ancestors so this event will be the perfect way to experience some German culture. Expect to see the Regina Costume League, dino bouncers, face painting, balloon fun, raffle prizes, Daschund races, and more!  

Doors open at 2:00, and the fun and games will run until 5:00 PM. Tickets are $5 per child and adults are free.

3. Sask Culture Days

Culture days are hosted annually throughout the province and there are several different events taking place September 28, 29, and 30 in Regina. This is an awesome group of events that get everyone interested and involved in many different cultures that are the makeup of our province.

Take place in a Japanese Drumming workshop, join an art or dance class or maybe take a Mandolin lesson at the Bothwell library. Check out the Culture Day website for events that are near you, specific times, and more.

2. Lumsden Scarecrow Festival

This fun event takes place in the town of Lumsden (obviously) on September 22nd at 10 AM. The residents of Lumsden are encouraged to set up scarecrow displays on their front lawns a week before and then judged on the day of the event. There are usually different themes every year and everyone usually goes “all out.” Lumsden has really created a fun tradition and it’s an understatement to say a ton of people get involved.

The best part? There’s no charge! Every year is a bit different, but in the past Capital employees have checked out the festival and saw fireworks, hay rides, a street market, face painting, and more! Your family won’t want to miss this one. Add the Lumsden Scarecrow festival to your calendar for autumn activities.

1. Wascana Centre

You must’ve known this would be on the list somewhere. The Wascana Centre is always a great place to go with family, friends, or even solo at any time in the year. This made our Fall list though because of the amazing transformation of trees. The colours are remarkable and it’s a must-see during the season.

There’s plenty to see including the lake itself, the bird sanctuary (before they fly away for the winter), Candy Cane Park, and more. The paths and parks to visit in the area are pretty much endless. Be sure to take in the brisk autumn air and get some exercise at the same time. Wascana Centre is perfect for beautiful photos as well.

Enjoy the Season!

Whatever Fall activity you decide to check out, be sure to tag us on social media so we can see what your family got up to this season. We’re always looking for fun activities for our own families and we thought these were some interesting ones to recommend. From our Capital family to yours, enjoy the warm autumn weather before winter graces us with its presence. Cheers!
