HISTORY WILL COME ALIVE FOR SASKATCHEWAN DAY
Join us August 5th from 1-4 pm at the Nicolle Homestead historic site in beautiful Buffalo Pound Provincial Park and celebrate Saskatchewan Day! Bring the whole family for FREE horse-drawn wagon rides and FREE homemade ice cream. Our staff will be in period costume to interpret the history of Charles Nicolle's homestead, as well as farm life at the turn of the century in Saskatchewan. Kids will have the opportunity to try out farm "chores", like doing laundry the old fashioned way, and there will be a FREE old-time photo booth, complete with costumes and props for a fantastic family photo opportunity! The Western Development Museum will be out to host activities for the whole family, and refreshments will be served!
-Access to the event site is available off highway 301. If coming from Moose Jaw (heading North), turn right at the park signs for “Nicolle Homestead” (just before the water treatment plant), and follow the road, down into the valley and turn left at the signs for “Nature Trail” (just before the bridge). Once at the parking lot (near the washrooms), wagon rides will be available to access the house, or visitors can walk down the trail (roughly 5-10 minute walk).
-Access from within the main area of Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is only available if visitors hike in from the Nicolle Flats Marsh boardwalk area (6 km hike roundtrip!).
*See map attached for directions.
Bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket and be sure to pack bug spray and sunscreen! The field stone house presents many great photo opportunities, so bring your camera!
