Discovery Coast Music Festival

This coming weekend is the 11th Discovery Coast Music Festival which is held at the Lobelco Fair Grounds - about 6 or 8 km east of the townsite of Bella Coola or about the same distance west of Hagensborg.

It's a family event and is usually really fun and nice and relaxing.  You bring your own lawn chair and maybe an umbrella (for sun) and plop it down wherever you want.  There are a few kids things, some booths of people selling a few things and some food and coffee vendors (and pie - try it).    The lineup of entertainers is always interesting and fitting to the setting.  They play into the late hours of the evening and usually a few people even get up and dance on the lawn.  Parking is mostly along Highway 20, just pull off as far as you can and don't block anyone's driveway.  I think it's a lot of hardwork for the volunteers that pull it off, as well as some tense moments coming up to the end of ticket sales to make sure they can pay for all the entertaniners, but they seem to pull off every time it is held.  Good for them, everything in Bella Coola is pretty much done by volunteers, it's just the way it is and the music fest is a real bonus for the summer valley activities. 

The Discovery Coast Music Fest - try to be there. Grizzly
