There’s still some tornado-themed events coming down the road (more on those in future posts) but today marks the end of the official commemoration of the tragedy.

One of the areas that took it on the chin from the tornado was the warehouse district. This afternoon at Bushwakker Brew Pub, several events are being held to inform people of what went down on this day in 1912 when the residential area south of downtown (pictured above), the downtown, the CPR yard, the warehouse district, and a residential strip north of the warehouse district were all hit.

At 1 and 2:30 p.m. local storyteller Vincent Murphy will present an excerpt from his one-person show ReLive! The Regina Tornado. Walking tours of the district will also be held at 1:30 and 3 p.m. Finally, presentations of before and after photos of the district are scheduled for 1:30 and 3 p.m. at Bushwakker.

Note: I believe there will also be a ceremony of some sort at Victoria Park today at 11 a.m.
