You're invited to join mascot Willy WINMAR as he celebrates his third birthday in Crescent Park on May 18.

WINMAR Property Restoration Specialists Moose Jaw and its lovable mascot, Willy WINMAR, are thrilled to announce the upcoming third annual birthday bash for Willy on Saturday, May 18 at the Crescent Park Amphitheatre and everyone’s invited to attend.

The party is completely free and will take place in the scenic downtown park from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. with amazing food truck vendors, family-friendly entertainment, and Central Collegiate’s own Ray Rawlyk will serenade guests with live music.

“It’s our third annual event that we do in Moose Jaw, which is something to bring the community together in Crescent Park, which is, in my opinion, a very beautiful park,” explained Pete Iatridis, WINMAR’s director of business development.

Willy is the official Service Ambassador of Care and Fun for WINMAR Moose Jaw and was born May 26, 2021, in Crescent Park – which is why the venue was chosen for his birthday. He loves giving high-fives, his favourite food is poutine with cupcakes for dessert, and he adores the squirrels and birds he grew up with in the park.

The lovable blue mascot’s party will feature a live magic show by Sitruc James, face painting, balloons, bouncy castles, obstacle courses, games, and he’ll have plenty of swag to give away.

Vendors will include Smokin’ Outlaws BBQ, Top Dog, Kona Ice, and Evolve Coffee will be providing many yummy treats. The party will be captured through the lens of Montana Falasca with Montana’s Photo Works.

Each time Willy WINMAR celebrates a birthday, it’s his tradition to select a charitable organization to support for his gift as he loves giving back to the community.

“We’re trying to constantly raise awareness for charitable groups and raise some monetary funds – or any other type of donation – that are required for that organization,” Iatridis said.

For this year’s selection, Willy roared out the name of Moose Jaw Family Services Inc. (MJFS).

“I just felt like they don’t get a lot of exposure and awareness in the community (for the important work they do),” Iatridis explained.

MJFS has been a trusted resource in Moose Jaw and the surrounding area since 1977, and the non-profit is committed to accessibility and affordability as it provides a client-centred approach to counselling services and parental supports.

A few requests include non-perishable food items such as canned soup, fruit, and vegetables, pasta sauce, Sidekicks, rice, pasta, cereal, and oatmeal, as well as baby formula and hygiene items including deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, and diapers.

For any questions about your donation, contact MJFS at 306-694-8133.

WINMAR Moose Jaw has been a proud member of the community since 2010 and its dedicated team states with confidence that “Your next home project is safe in our hands.” Led by Kyle Jacques – who is well respected for his integrity and professionalism – WINMAR prides itself on delivering prompt, experienced, and professional work to perform nation-wide restoration services for residential and commercial properties.

No matter the project, WINMAR promises to keep “Coming through for you.”

Willy WINMAR appreciates all his human supporters but would be delighted if other mascots could also attend his big day. The Warrior’s mascot Marty Moose is coming, and if you want to register your mascot, call 306-690-3623 or email

Willy is super excited, and Iatridis said he keeps roaring “I’m Willy happy we’re going back home for my birthday!” He hopes everyone will have “a Willy good time” and is thrilled to partner up with MJFS.

Donations can be brought to the party and will be accepted by representatives on location.
