It was a summer to remember! Seemingly endless days of sunshine, record breaking high temperatures, and some days of smoky air to remind us of the wildfires burning in the B.C. Interior and from our neighbours to the south. We dodged the fire bullet at Green Lake, but some of our neighbours at Pressy Lake weren’t so lucky, losing everything to the forest fire. Now, due to a full Fall calendar, we’re forced to shut down the cabin early this year. The dock comes out this weekend. We enjoyed some terrific shows at Blue Frog Studios over the Summer, but proposed zoning changes, and developer’s plans might shorten the life of Blue Frog. We’ll have to wait and see. It’s never over till it’s over! Bring on Fall.
Rock band Chilliwack rocked White Rock B.C. last night, part of a series of concerts sponsored by TD Bank, the City of White Rock, White Rock Business Improvement Assoc. ReMax and Blue Frog Studios. The concerts are FREE and will be held on Marine Drive Thursdays from 7:00 – 10:00pm, with two special Saturday shows: July 15th in the Five Corners shopping district of uptown White Rock, and the grand finale at the beach on August 19th. Over a thousand attended the outdoor concert last night. Bill Henderson and the band were amazing, and thankfully the weather co-operated to help make it a perfect Summer evening! Next up, the R&B All Stars, on July 15th at 5 Corners, a street party, part of the annual Bike Race, the Tour de White Rock.
I had the chance to MC a special presentation for the White Rock Business Improvement Association today, held at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. It was to announce the lineup of bands performing at the 2017 TD Concerts by the Pier, happening this Summer. Outdoor concerts by the Pier by headliners, Chilliwack, Eagle Eyes, Led Zepagain, Little Destroyer and Platinum Blonde! And a street dance at Five Corners with the R&B All Stars. It’s going to be quite a Summer for music in White Rock!
