Outdoor concerts most Saturday’s

The next Lake Country Open Air Concert is July 13 at the Oyama Community Hall beginning at 6 p.m.

Megan Lauridsen performed on Canada Day which was also the kick off for the Lake Country Open Air Concert Series which continues every Saturday to Aug. 31

The next event in the Lake Country Open Air Concert Series is July 13 at the Oyama Community Hall beginning at 6 p.m.

The series got off to a bang when Canada Day celebrations kicked off the season. Several performers were in fine form under beautiful conditions.

An open air concert and movie was hosted by Lake Country Open Air Performance Society on Canada Day.  The weather was perfect for a day of celebration spent outdoors with family and friends.

In the morning the Rotary Club hosted their annual Canada Day pancake breakfast and the Lake Country Fire Department had a display of fire trucks for residents and visitors to explore and have their photo taken with before the formal ceremony at 11 a.m. with Mayor James Baker and MLA Norm Letnick.

Then the Lake Country Open Air performance kicked off an evening of free entertainment with Megan Lauridsen and Chantelle Betuzzi from Okanagan Kids Have Talent.

Talented Kids performers Taylor Hickson and Ciara Meyers were up next, followed by the co-winners of the Lake County Open Mic Has Talent contest—Jeff Kouvenhoven and Justin Dueck. The Public House Band closed the concert and had the audience of 150 clapping, singing and dancing to everything from The Beatles to Beyonce and beyond.

The evening rounded out with a Movie-in-the-Park.
