How to celebrate 150th Canada day (Saskatoon) 

 

First of all, this is our 4th of 150 posts about 150th Canada Independence day celebrations (this post is about Saskatoon).

 

Saskatoon is the largest city in The Province of Saskatchewan. This province is the closest province to my province, Alberta. If you don’t know where Saskatchewan is, please see google map at the end of the page. Have you ever heard of PotashCorp? PotashCorp is a known name associated with this nice city.

Meaning

 

The name Saskatoon (at the place of many Saskatoon berries) refers to the sweet, violet-coloured berry that grows in the area.

 

The establishment date of this city was in 1883 and Incorporated in 1906. A few local attractions are The Bez (Hotel Delta Bessborough), Mendel Art Gallery, The Meewasin Valley Trail, Traffic Bridge, Royal Canadian Legion, Frank & Ellen Remai Arts Centre, The Ukranian Museum of Canada, The Saskatchewan Western Development Museum, The Saskatchewan Railway Museum, The Forestry Farm Park & Zoo, Wanuskewin Heritage Park and Saskatoon Farmer’s Market. In addition to attractions listed here, there are more local attractions not listed here.

Finally

 

As I mentioned earlier, Saskatoon was established in 1883 and incorporated in 1906. By 2011, Saskatoon’s population was little over 222k. In case if you want to learn more about this beautiful city, read here. You can enjoy Northern Lights in winter months here. A lot of tourists (domestic and international) visit here to watch Northern Lights.

  2. I’m a huge fan of Canada, I haven’t visited Saskatoon but your photos make me want to go. Canada is great at throwing a party with wonderful festivals- wish I could visit all of Canada to celebrate 150!

  3. I first heard of Saskatoon when I was still in high school. The name sounded so interesting that it stuck in my mind. Still have to make it there, though. Hopefully soon! 🙂

  4. This makes me regret not going to Saskatchewan for New Years. I almost did that last year but the flight routing was awful. It was cheap but awful.

  5. The sun peeking from the Saskatoon landscape is breathtakingly gorgeous. The hues of orange and blues create a perfect harmony. Even though I never heard about this place, I would really love to visit it someday

  6. Starting to wish I stopped off in Saskatoon on my road trip through Sa-kach-a-ween in 2015. Looks like I missed out on a bit. 🙁

  7. Saskatoon is such an interesting name – love that it is named after the violet coloured berries from the area, such a connection to the land. I’m sure the celebrations for Canada’s 150 years will be great here.
