Don’t miss Gospel Music festival

Gospel music festival to be held at Pass Creek Fair Grounds July 18.

  • Jul. 8, 2015 1:00 p.m.

The 2015 Pass Creek Gospel Music Festival is fast approaching. This year it will be held on Saturday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pass Creek Exhibition Grounds.

This year’s special guest musical group is Double Portion from North Battleford, Sask. Their name certainly is appropriate as the group consists of Duncan and Debra Hemmerling and their nine children. They have won numerous awards and toured extensively from Newfoundland to B.C and from Nashville to Alaska.

The local groups who will be appearing have not been finalized at this time, except for the ever popular Blueberry Pickers bluegrass group.

Don’t forget to bring lawn chairs or a blanket, as seating is limited. Also bring bug spray and a jacket or sweater for when the sun goes down.

A freewill offering will be taken. This is a family event, so bring the whole family and enjoy some nationally acclaimed entertainment, but please leave your pets at home.

In case of rain the event will be moved to new life church, 602 – 7th St. Castlegar.

For more information call John at 250-365-7456, or email john491@shaw.ca.
