Wednesday, July 5, 2017 @ 5:53 AM

Prince George, B.C.- While the City of Prince George  enjoys the Heatwave music festival,  Summerfest  will keep the downtown celebrations going. The date for this year’s Summerfest is  July 16th.

From 11 am to 5 pm, the grounds in front of City Hall and along George Street will be filled with music, food and activities for the whole family.

The popular Taste Pavilion returns but  requires  Taste Tickets if you plan to sample the  delights from a number of local restaurants.  To avoid line ups, Taste Tickets can be purchased in advance  at the Canadian Western Bank on Victoria Street, or  Tourism Prince George.  Tickets are also available at the event itself.

A mainstage will  be set up where  a variety of musical talent will provide entertainment, including a sneak peek of the  musical Anne of Green Gables being produced by Judy Russell.

On City Hall grounds, an exhibitor’s  alley  where  artists will have  items for sale,  and information booths will be set up.

The butterfly greenhouse returns,  where  monarch butterflies can be released.  Also returning is the misting  station where everyone can  cool off.   New for the little ones is  a dinosaur dig,  plus  entertainment from Dr. Von Houligan’s Carnival of Calamities.
