Looking for a great family fun event with free music? Check out RiverFest 2012 put on by the Hyack Festival Assosciation. With great tunes, food, activities, and (fingers crossed) some warm sunshine, this is an event not to be missed!
Celebrate Rivers Day along BC’s longest and most magnificent river – the Fraser River. On Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, we will celebrate BC and World Rivers Day with a festival that honours the Fraser River, the province’s most magnificent river, and its many tributaries. The festival includes live music, dramatic performances and participatory art activities. Main Stage performances will be headlined by Andrew Allen – one of BC’s hottest emerging talents. He has scored two Top 10 hits in Canada, 2009’s “I Wanna Be Your Christmas” and 2010’s single “Loving You Tonight,” which was lodged in the upper reaches of the singles chart for weeks. BC Rivers Day is a province-wide event, which gives the public an opportunity to celebrate this province’s spectacular river heritage, from city streams to wilderness whitewater. Held every year on the last weekend in September, events throughout the province attract over 75,000 people in more than 100 communities. The success of this event has recently led to the establishment of World Rivers Day, which coincides with BC Rivers Day and takes place in a number of different countries.
