On Friday’s Morning News: Nuit Blanche Saskatoon, Wings for Life race, the Farmers Market and the Holocaust memorial service.

What is Nuit Blanche? Jessica finds out the answer

This event sounds like a great time, and I am looking very forward to it. It’s a night time event, and when translated to English “nuit blanche” means white night, aka “to light the night”.

Event goers can expect different art installations and vendors starting at the framers market, and hopefully expending out toward the river in the next coming years.

Being that the event is at the end of September, here in Saskatchewan we’ve learned to expect the unexpected weather wise, which kind of scares me if I’m going to be honest … but we’re a hearty bunch and rain (snow), or shine nothing can keep us away!

Josh Dueck explains to Kevin how the Wings for Life race works

The Wings for Life world run. A race against 164 nations, 32 countries along 6 continents. And you, loyal viewer and intrepid listener, could race ‘em all.
What a cool idea. With today’s technology, it dances well within the realm of possibility – it just needed legs. Pun intended.

And with 100% of proceeds from this event going straight to spinal cord injury research, it’s a guaranteed win for everyone involved.

Melissa found out what is cooking at Saskatoon’s Farmers Market

Today I had a chance to spend the morning at the farmers market and one thing that I absolutely loved was the passion people have for fresh locally grown food.

One thing that I found interesting that we didn’t mentioned was that the lentils were cooked in coffee. And it was delicious!

You know it’s a sign of summer when the farmer market moves outside. Tomorrow will be the first day of the outdoor market where you can meet with local farmers and hear all about their produce. The night market kicked off yesterday and continues every first Thursday of the month.

Jessica reflects on the upcoming Holocaust memorial service

I have had an opportunity to listen to Holocaust survivor Robbie Waisman speak a few years ago at this Memorial Weekend, and believe me when I say this, take the time to go hear what he has to say because in a few years we might not have the chance.

He is speaking to the public this Sunday at 1:30 at the Congregation Agudas Israel Synagogue.
