This is the third year for this festival. We attended the first year, but missed the second. The crowd was decidedly larger than the first year. Friday night was Beatles night (Fab Fourever), which unfortunately we missed. The first act on Saturday was a Neil Young tribute (Live Rust), which we also missed due to previous obligations, but from all we heard - we should not have missed it.
The weather was perfect - next year the Resort will probably have to move the bandstand to the mountainside. The crowds are definitely getting larger - a good thing for the resort. Kevin Costner attracted 6000 fans and Matthew Good will no doubt attract as many on the long weekend in September.
Sunday was Sun Peaks Farmers' Market Day -
The festival ended with a 2-hour ABBA Again concert - young and old alike enjoyed, clapped, sang and danced.
The final event of the weekend was the inaugural 540 Longboard Challenge - money prizes for these young daredevils. They came down a long and windy course through the subdivisions to the finish line in the village.
What a great weekend!
