The organizers of Main Beach events at Cultus Lake want to keep the momentum going with Live at the Gazebo!

It’s a series of free concerts scheduled every Thursday night until Aug. 30.

“Our committee wanted to engage the community by doing something special,” says Lillian Newhouse, member of the Main Beach Event and Fundraising committee.

They took out the barbecue pit and the cement tables, and brought in a power source for performers.

On Aug. 2 it’s a six-piece blues band The Crew from Hope. Experience Irish culture on Aug. 9 with Vancouver band Blackthorn and some traditional dancers.

The first event the group put on was Community Day on June 9, which was successful despite windy and cool weather, with a pancake breakfast and a parade, as well as a band.

So far they’ve raised $2000 for the “Be Part of Your Park Brick Fund.” They’re putting in an attractive cement pathway lined with engraved bricks to give better access to the site for people with mobility issues.

Live at the Gazebo, free music on Main Beach at Cultus Lake Park, every Thursday evening until the end of August, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
