“We are pleased to offer drive-in movies as a way for campers and park visitors to enjoy our beautiful park setting, create memories with their families and still adhere to the safety protocols in place for Saskatchewan residents,” Makowsky said.

The movies are free to attend with a valid park vehicle entry permit.

The province is encouraging visitors to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #saskparks for a chance to be featured on its social media platforms.

Parks staff will continue to implement cleaning and sanitation procedures.
