Pick of the Weekend: WakeRide

WakeRide, located in Saskatoon’s Victoria Park, will be taking over the South Saskatchewan River this weekend. In addition to the pile of shirtless dudes who will no doubt be lounging in the beer gardens and comparing wicked awesome tats, indie rock fans can take solace in the variety of music emanating from the festival stage, including Toronto’s Broken Social Scene.

Also, expect loud, machine gun-like bursts of noise from the various wakeboarding events that will be held all weekend.
