This Sunday is the day to express gratitude to our dear old father.

The kite festival, several music festivals, and special Father’s Day menus at several restaurants were just a few of the highlights in Regina.

Saskatoon residents are spending their wet days at the farmers market, the Prairie Lily, and, most importantly, at home with their families.

“I recall my father’s excellent qualities and maybe some gratitude from my sons, and we might have a lovely supper tonight, and that’s about it,” Ian Parenteau, the father, said.

The farmers market was open on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there was a summer reading tent for kids.

For brunch and dinner, the Prairie Lily was completely booked.

“We’ve got a genuine family vibe here,” Joan Steckhan, Prairie Lily Co-owner, said. “There’s plenty of tiny kids out there with their dads, and on our brunch, we had a lot of big kids with their dads, so it’s a family celebration today.”

Because of the drizzle, Steckhan feels it was a nice day to be outside.

“The rain, even with this small drizzle, is so beautiful in the river valley, so the people who are joining us today are in for a wonderful treat,” Steckhan remarked.

She claims that many families have spent the day together, particularly since this is the first Father’s Day they’ve been allowed to run in two years.

“It’s good to be back for Father’s Day,” Steckhan said. “The last 2 years, we couldn’t sail on Father’s Day, so it’s nice to have all the dads back.”
