There is also the Regina Pats game at 6 p.m., as well as an all-day, 32-team hockey tournament at the Co-operators Centre.

On top of that, there will be a craft fair at the Agribition building and programming in the AffinityPlex.

Parking is on a first-come basis unless you have prepaid for Rider gameday parking or have Regina Pats VIP parking. There will be a designated parking area for each event.
