PotashCorp Fireworks Festival!
Bridging the Future
September 2nd - Team Philippines
September 3rd - Team Canada
The hub of activity for the PotashCorp Fireworks Festival is Saskatoon's spectacular River Landing, along the South Saskatchewan River in the heart of Saskatoon.
Live shows take place on Friday and Saturday evenings at the Amphitheatre at River Landing. Both evenings are topped off with a fantastic fireworks display set to music.
The PotashCorp Fireworks Festival is truly a community celebration. Aside from the terrific entertainment and amazing fireworks displays, the Festival features: food, fun for kids and adults, demonstrations and games, and a bike valet service.
Visit the new aerosol mural River Reflection by artist Jerry Rugg (also known as BirdO) on the abutment wall of the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge in River Landing. Originally from Saskatoon, BirdO has created a whimsical, surreal depiction of BirdO's fond childhood memories along the river front. BirdO’s stylistic murals have been installed in Canada, the United States, and South America.
