Barriere Bandshell Friday: Don’t miss it

This community event provides an opportunity for performers in the North Thompson Valley to show what they can offer for music in the park

Weekly audiences to Friday Night at The Bandshell are a mix that includes entire families

Summer is slowly drawing to a close, and with it so does the once a week community event held in the evening during ‘Bandshell Friday’ in Fadear Park. This year Mother Nature  co-operated, providing warm and pleasant weather, with just a light sprinkle of rain once in awhile with no one needing their umbrellas.

This community event provides an opportunity for performers in the North Thompson Valley to show what they can offer for music in the park.  Judging by the applause, the audience definitely enjoys these performances.

Weekly audiences are a mix that includes entire families, seniors, children of all ages, and a number of spectators who  arrive on scooters. Many folks bring canine companions of all shapes and sizes, and sometimes there is also a very large blue cat on a leash,  unconcerned about all that is happening around him, and not disturbed by dogs nor music.

Many families arrive with everything needed to enjoy a picnic in the park.   Children play, while accompanying adults relax in lawn chairs and listen to music ranging from blue grass to country.  You can find vendors on site offering a good variety of tasty snacks for purchase.

Bandshell Fridays start at 6:00 p.m., and go until 9:00 p.m. The final Bandshell Friday of the summer takes place August 30.  Don’t miss it!
