Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Host Drive-In Movie Nights

Three Saskatchewan Provincial Parks will host drive-in movie nights this summer and the lineup is sure to please!

“This year in Saskatchewan Provincial Parks we have worked hard to ensure a fun, yet safe summer,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “We are pleased to offer drive-in movies as a way for campers and park visitors to enjoy our beautiful park setting, create memories with their families and still adhere to the safety protocols in place for Saskatchewan residents.”

The first movie night will take place on Friday, July 31 at 9:30 p.m. in Moose Mountain Provincial Park and will feature The Great Outdoors.

Attendees will be excited to know that many in-park businesses will be participating in the event and offering some great giveaways.  Promotional items from the Kenosee Inn & Cabins, Kenosee Superslides and Club 19/Golf Kenosee will be given away prior to the event.  Movie-goers are encouraged to go to the park early and enjoy a special rate at Master’s Mini Golf or take part in a meet and greet with horses from the Kenosee Lake Riding Academy before the show.

Movies aren’t complete without snacks, so Allison’s Park Store will be setting up a temporary outdoor concession and selling treats prior to and during the movie.

More Sask Parks drive-in movie nights will take place on these dates and in the following locations:

Saturday, August 22 at 9 p.m. in Blackstrap Provincial Park Featuring: Toy Story 4

Friday, September 4 at 9 p.m. in Blackstrap Provincial Park Featuring: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Saturday, September 5 at 9 p.m. in Buffalo Pound Provincial Park Featuring: The Lion King (2019).

Drive-in movies are free to attend with a valid park vehicle entry permit.  Visitors should note that space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.  Campsites are available in all Saskatchewan Provincial Parks until the end of September, for more information and to book a site, campers can visit https://saskparks.goingtocamp.com/.

Park visitors are encouraged to share their photos on social media using #saskparks for a chance to be featured on the Sask Parks website and social platforms.

Sask Parks staff continue to implement enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures.  Signage is in place throughout the parks to remind visitors of the safety protocols.  Campers are asked to bring hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, maintain physical distance from others, respect the restrictions and rules that are in place and to stay home if not feeling well.  By working together, park staff and visitors can ensure parks remain safe spaces for all.
