Family Day in Estevan

Family to me is very important, and I’m grateful I have all of them here in Estevan, Sk. Family day is a holiday for families to spend time together and is perfect when we all have crazy busy schedules! Below, I’ve shared a list with you of the best adventures of things to do in Estevan on Family Day.

 

 

Family Day Free Swim

Thanks to the Estevan Lions Club you can take the whole family for a FREE swim at the RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre! Starts 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. They also serve a FREE lunch at the Nicholson Centre after swimming. (hot dogs, sloppy joes, popcorn).

 

Go Skating at the Outdoor Rinks

Skating at the outdoor rink is a tradition in my family and we take advantage of the three outdoor rinks around town; Rusty Duce (Nicholson), Audrey Fichter Memorial Rink (George Street) and Westview (First Street).  There are warm-up shacks at each location open at 9:00 am till 9:30 pm.

 

Parent and Tot Skate

A great way for your little ones how to learn how to skate. It’s a 45-minute skate in Affinity place or Power Dodge Ice Centre. Take your little punkers and teach them how to skate!

Toboggan down the Valley

   Get bundled up and head outside for some winter fun. Grab a crazy carpet or toboggan and slide down a hill. The best ones are Pleasantdale Valley or 1st Street Hill. We love to grab a hot chocolate from Tim Hortons or McDonald’s afterwards.

Go for a winter walk downtown and go shopping

    Living in Saskatchewan we are all used to the weather and we embrace it! It can be so beautiful, the hoarfrost, and quiet crunch of snow underneath your feet. Stroll downtown and spend quality time together while treating each other with a little present from our stores downtown.

 

Have a Snowball fight  

Head outside make teams and have a friendly snowball fight with the family.  Play capture the flag or one hit and your out. The losing team has to make hot chocolate for the rest of the family.

Create Crafts in the snow

Freeze coloured water into ice cubes, then hide them around the yard for a wintertime scavenger hunt or play a game of tic tac toe, fill a bottle of food colouring in a bottle and create art in your front yard. Use your imagination!

Happy Family Day Everybody!
