Performers of various sorts will be streaming into Chilliwack in February.

The Chilliwack Lions Club Music and Dance Festival runs from Tuesday, February 4 to Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, with the Band division at G.W. Graham Middle-Secondary School.

The Chilliwack Lions Club Dance and Music Festival hosted provincial competitions last spring and the winners from the provincials went on to compete in the national competition in Waterloo, Ont. in August.

B.C. reps fared “very well” there, say local festival organizers.

Chilliwack’s own Paul Williamson represented B.C. in the national piano class.

Katie Miller from the Kiwanis Fraser Valley Festival won first place in the voice category. The $1500 prize was donated by The Gail Asper Family Foundation, MB.
