May Long, also known as Victoria Day, is the long weekend in May where the weather is capable of doing anything! It can be sunny and gorgeous, raining, or even worse…snowing. But still, there are tons of things to do – no matter the weather! I’ve been a resident of Estevan for many years, and LOVE staying home to enjoy the first long weekend of the summer here in Estevan.
Here is my list of the top 5 things to do in Estevan on a long weekend.
1. Take in a round of golf
TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course
2. Check out the Farmers Market
On Saturday mornings all summer long the Estevan Farmers Market is open at the Estevan Shoppers Mall Parking Lot. If you are like me, you have been waiting patiently to plant flowers. They have local greenhouses with locally grown flowers for sale. AND grab some homemade baking, buns, and locally made jam!
3. Go fish!
If it’s raining, you could play cards, or venture out to Boundary or Rafferty Dam, cast a line and try to catch a fish. Rumour has it, Largemouth Bass are easier to find when it’s raining.
4. Grab a coffee and go to the Dog Park
Take Fifi, Fido, or in my case Kaiser, to the Dog Park located at Woodlawn Regional Park. From there you can venture out and enjoy Preddy Trails, the parks trail system that covers many kms of hiking under their maple trees.
5. Beat a friend at Pickleball
Pickleball. Yes, pickleball is my new favourite sport. Rental equipment and booking information is available at the Information Desk at the Estevan Leisure Centre. No skill required to play the game! (Trust me)
Whatever it is you decide to do this long weekend, make sure you #ExperienceEstevan to its fullest!
Till next time!
