What a great summer it has been! Regina has had a lot of great events to enjoy from Garth Brooks and the Queen City Ex to the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the 50th Regina Folk Festival. Even though the kids are heading back to school and the temperatures are cooling there is still so much to see and do in Regina this month.
Event Highlight - Chicago
Chicago tells the storey of Roxie Hart and is based on real-life murders and it is set amidst the razzle dazzle of the 1920s. It is loaded with show-stopping songs and breath taking choreography.
