It was an action-packed Family Day in Saskatchewan.
In Saskatoon, a number of fitness centres across the city held open houses to celebrate the holiday. At the Lakewood indoor tennis centre, families got the chance to hit the courts and serve up some rallies. The centre even provided miniature nets for pint-sized players.
The Saskatchewan Fencing Association also hosted an open house. Kids of all sizes came out ot hit targets and square off against their parents in a sword match.
In Regina, families were also out celebrating the day together. The Victoria Square skating rink is known more for being surrounded by people on their lunchbreaks downtown, but today there were kids of all ages.
Family Day is celebrated in Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario. The very first Family Day was held in 1990 in Alberta and was meant to reflect the values of the pioneers who settled the province.
