Cruisin’ for a Boozin’

Walk Name: Cruisin’ for a Boozin’         
Walk Leader(s): Mairin Loewen  

Description of Walk leader(s) and/or why you are leading this walk (optional):

My name is Mairin Loewen and I’m the City Councillor for Ward 7. Bars, pubs, and other licensed establishments are both loved and loathed in our community. This walk is an opportunity to consider the role bars and alcohol have played in our City and what their influence might be in the future.

Duration : 1 Hour for walk

Walk Description
Saskatoon may have been originally imagined as a Temperance Colony, but within years of its establishment alcohol had officially moved to town. This walk will take participants through Exhibition and Avalon, and along the way we’ll stroll by several bars and talk about the way the way they’re regulated and how they impact our community. The walk will conclude with an opportunity for refreshments at an all-ages local establishment (on the patio, weather permitting!). Don’t let the title fool you: this is a family-friendly walk!
