The 2015 Saskatoonberry Festival was a huge success!!
Western Dressage was at the rink and we imagine it will be even more popular next year.
Twenty minute seminars at the school gym [a cool place for people to rest in the afternoon ] were also new and popular and included a model railway display, quilting display, landscape architectural design, companion planting.
CJ Katz entertained with food and will come back again.
The bands were excellent in the evening although we wish more people had stayed for them. If anyone has ideas on how to keep the crowd for the bands, let us know!
Charlie at 86 years promised Speckles that this would be the last time they would ride in the parade.
