RCMP Heritage Centre
5907 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, S4T 0P4
RCMP members are born all over the world, but they are made in Regina, Saskatchewan at RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division. “Depot” has been training the brightest and the best on its grounds since 1885. Located on the front lawn of this historic training facility, the RCMP Heritage Centre brings to life one of Canada’s oldest and most iconic stories, the story of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police through state-of-the-art exhibits, multimedia technologies, and engaging programming and tours of the training academy. Learn about the history of the Force, hop in the saddle and join the 2015 RCMP Musical Ride members by way of virtual reality, try on some uniforms, watch a movie about cadet training and visit the academy. There’s so much to do! A popular feature, and must see event, is the Sergeant Major’s Parade, a public demonstration of foot drills accompanied by a regimental band, performed over the lunch hour on weekdays.

As a result, the SSHF will host an Anniversary Gala on Friday, September 30, 2016 at the Queensbury Conference Centre in Regina. This event will feature first class cuisine and entertainment that is second to none as we honour those who are synonymous with Saskatchewan sport, the 505 inductees currently installed in the SSHF. Their stories speak to this province’s rich sports history and celebrate some of Saskatchewan’s proudest sports moments. The evening will be highlighted by a Parade of Inductees, featuring five decades of sports excellence. Guests who are part of this Gala will also engage in an emotional response as they share the personal stories commemorating Saskatchewan’s sport heritage from three star-studded Hotstove Panels comprised of Football, Hockey and Olympic inductees of the SSHF. Gerry James, Bob Bourne, Glenn Hall, Diane Jones Konihowski, and Mike Mintenko will be among the inductees included in the panels.

Take Some Time Out at the MacKenzie Art Gallery this Weekend!
Conveniently located near the race events in Wascana Park, the MacKenzie Art Gallery is a great place to take a break over the Queen City Marathon weekend, and enjoy several exhibitions currently on view:
The Candahar is a meticulously handcrafted recreation of the interior of a historic Belfast public house by Winnipeg-based artist Theo Sims. By inserting a functioning pub in a Canadian art gallery, The Candahar provides an open space for exchange and intercultural encounters. Every Thursday evening from 5 – 9PM, The Candahar is open for business and the public is invited to engage with guest bar hosts from Regina’s vibrant communities.
Fischli and Weiss: The Way Things Go, documents an elaborate chain reaction using everyday items such as tires, ladders, trash bags and old shoes. Chemical reactions and gravity provide a surprising range of triggers for the ingenious reactions which unfold over the course of 30 unforgettable minutes. As Guardian critic Jeremy Millar notes: “If history is 'just one thing after another', then The Way Things Go is truly a historic work.”
Lesser-known Saskatchewan Landscapes Gleaned from the MacKenzie’s permanent collection, this exhibition explores the byways of the Saskatchewan landscape through a broad cross-section of Saskatchewan artists who have contributed to the artistic fabric of this province.
