Topic: Arts in the Park August 18

Edit: Just to avoid confusion, note that this is from last year's (2011) festival .

On Thursday, August 18 there will be a musical "hors d'œuvre" to the Festival at Manning Park.  It is the 100th anniversary of BC Parks and in celebration there will be a musical shindig at Lightning Lake on the afternoon of Thursday, August 18th.  Performers lined up so far are Bob Webb -- shanty singer, banjo player extraordinaire, etc. -- Jon Bartlett and Rika Ruebsaat.  All three of these people are appearing at the Traditional Music Festival.  At Lightning Lake there will also be a string quartet and probably the Princeton Town Band.  We're also trying to get the Princeton Highland dancers, so it should be a great warm-up shindig for the Festival.  More details to come as plans develop.
