Spirit of Elvis is alive and well in Barriere

Canadian Blue Moon Elvis Festival held at North Thompson Fairgrounds in Barriere

Some of the Canadian Blue Moon Elvis Festival tribute artists.

The 3rd Annual Canadian Blue Moon Elvis Festival was held for the first time in Barriere last weekend at the North Thompson fall fairgrounds with a full contingent of entertainers, including 10 Elvis tribute artists.  The event started Friday night, and ran right through to Sunday evening with an enthusiastic audience arriving from B.C. Alberta and points south.  They came to socialize, hear their favourites, meet the artists and attend the Saturday night Golden Years of Rock and Roll extravaganza.  The musical weekend was a trip back in time for those attending, the talent was first rate, the atmosphere inviting and the audience went home happy.  The event was a grand success; so much so that organizers have already booked their next event to return to Barriere July 15 – 17, 2016.
