The Saskatoon Ex was a big deal for us the summer these photos were taken. We lived much closer to Prairieland Park – close enough to get residential parking passes, also close enough to watch the nightly fireworks from our front porch. Since I was working at the racetrack that summer, I had an all-access pass. It was also the year I tried out the Zipper – while I’m always up for the giant slingshot, the Zipper isn’t one I’m eager to repeat.
We still live on the south side of Saskatoon, but we aren’t close enough to see the fireworks any more.
