Turnout was close to 200 for July 20 event

Perfect evening for Pass Creek Gospel Music

Heat eased up at just the right time for July 20 event

Calm and comfortable, the conditions were ideal for the Pass Creek Gospel Music Festival held Saturday Night at the well-suited fairgrounds.

Getting started at 6:30, the sun was going behind the nearby trees as close to 200 faithful settled in to enjoy a varied program of sacred music.

A group called the Fehr Family from Southern Alberta headlined an assortment of performers that included the Castlegar Pentecostal New Life Assembly Singers and Band, the Kinnaird Church of God Singers, and a Castlegar Bluegrass Group.

The one-night event appeared to be quite a success, and organizer John Phillips told the crowd a three-day event is being considered for the future. He asked the crowd to help in deciding whether to expand next year, by going online and offering feedback.
