It’s a big day for the town of Watson on Saturday June 3. The Spring Into Watson event is back with something for everyone during the course of a jam-packed day.
The day kicks off with the pancake breakfast at the New Horizons Centre on Main Street. There’s always some great start-the-day staples and plenty of hospitality at the kick-off sponsored by the Watson Museum.
Volunteer Halley Manderscheid has the lowdown on other events happening throughout the day.
“We have a huge trade show with over 60 vendors at the arena. We have the Car Show and Show and Shine, and we have a barbecue lunch put on by our firefighters.”
The barbecue lunch from 11-2 features the ever-popular elephant ears and delicious ice cream by Cats Creamery. The Show and Shine hits Main Street at 10 am and runs until 2 pm.
There’s entertainment for the kids with games for the kids, and for shoppers, along with the regular attraction of Watson businesses, a town wide garage sale runs all day.
The day winds up with the excitement of a cabaret featuring Saskatchewan’s own country tunesmith, Brock Andrews. Andrews is a 15 time SCMA nominee and one of the most played Saskatchewan artists on the country’s airwaves. Complete with an award winning band, Andrews continues to delight crowds and will showcase some of his latest music at the event. Doors open at 8:30 at the Watson Civic Centre.
“The event is put on by our local Chamber of Commerce,” Halley says. “Of course, they support many of our other local charities. So it’s a good event to support our community, and we’re excited to see everybody come out."
