THINGS TO know

The Western Star - - Front Page -

Per­for­mances by two clas­sic Cana­dian rock iconic groups and a first-rate summer’s evening proved the per­fect com­bi­na­tion to at­tract par­ty­go­ers for Satur­day’s Ex­ploits Val­ley Salmon Fes­ti­val.

The con­cert’s early per­for­mances fea­tured lo­cal tal­ent and de­spite a day that saw tem­per­a­tures soar high into the 20s, the early crowds lagged.

But as if on the cue, the crowd built early in the evening in an­tic­i­pa­tion of per­for­mances by April Wine and Lover­boy.

Un­of­fi­cial at­ten­dance num­bers for the con­cert aren’t tra­di­tion­ally re­leased right away, but many who have at­tended the most re­cent shows es­ti­mated Satur­day night’s crowd to be above 2,000.
