Heatwave- The Event- Set for City
Prince George, B.C.- As part of the City of Prince George’s celebrations to mark the 150th birthday of Canada, a week long music festival will be taking place in the Canada Games Plaza.
“We have performances lined up from July 1st to the 8th” says Civic Events Coordinator Jen Tkachuk. There will be live music at noon and in the evening (7-10:30 pm) in Canada Games Plaza.
July 1st is the only day when there won’t be a lunch time performance and there is no evening performance on the 7th and 8th as the BMO KizArt Dayz are underway.
There will be fireworks on Canada Day to wrap up July 1st.
Tkachuk says there are some top performers on the week lone performance schedule “Delhi to Dublin is going to be the big act on July 1sr, which is huge. We also have Bruce Cockburn on July 5th and the Paperboys on July 8th.”
Lining up the talent for this week long event was no small feat, as many acts are in high demand for sesquicentennial events right across the Country says Tkachuk “Sue from the Folkfest Society did an incredible job of lining up the acts. Heatwave is done in partnership with them and they have done a really bang up job in getting some incredible performers.”
The performances are free , and like the Canada Winter Games, the plaza will be open We will have one of the large stages, the portable trailer stage, then there will be food vendors along the promenade at the Civic Centre. We will have a few picnic tables for people who want to sit and eat, but in general it will be open standing room.”
