A Stay-cation Bingo has been launched by Tourism Yorkton.
Executive Director Randy Goulden states that the bingo is meant to get tourists to explore Yorkton.
“We’re also looking to provide some information that live in and around Yorkton. We know one of the largest reasons to come to Yorkton is to friends and family, so there’s so many things to do once you’re here, we really want to promote what we have.” Goulden said.
Bingo cards can be picked up and submitted to the Tourism Yorkton office, with three draws for Scoops Ice Cream gift cards up for grabs. The draws happen July 15, August 15 and August 30.
The Yorkton Art Walk has a couple of new additions this year.
Goulden announced that the new art pieces are all done by local artists.
“In this time that we’ve been in a pandemic, we wanted to bring to life the artists we have and provide them with some funding so that they can continue with the art and the crafts they do. We’re really pleased that we highlight the work done by Tonia Vermette, Michelle Easton and Mya Lauer.” she said.
Residents can see the repainted and restored photo stand and the yarn bombed classic train at the Tourism Yorkton Office, while the visitor centre has local Indigenous artwork for sale.
Excitement for all public health restrictions lifting in the province
On July 11th, all public health restrictions in Saskatchewan will be lifted.
The Executive Director of Tourism Yorkton says that to say she is excited would be an understatement.
“We’ve provided information services throughout the pandemic. Even through the lockdown we provided curbside and internet information. But now to actually see and talk with visitors it is so exciting.” Goulden said.
