Family-Friendly Winter Fun in Regina

Monday, November 14, 2011 - 10:50pm

The winter months in Regina don’t have to be a time to lock yourself in the house; there are a lot of things to see and places to go. So if you hear the cry “I’m bored” from your children (or yourself), check out some fun events and activities that Regina has to offer this winter.

With so many things to do, we had to break it down:

If you have an event you would like included in our Family-Friendly Winter Fun in Regina guide, please email us at
