Wapiti Music Festival – Get To Know The Bands On Spotify

Wapiti Music Festival 2019 Lineup Have A Listen on Spotify

I’m going through the Wapiti Music Festival playlist to prepare myself for August. I only know a couple bands (slightly) in the lineup so I plan to get started now, if I’m going to sing along to any of these songs.

Festival Of Lights In Fernie

Michelle and I were artists in the Festival of Lights this past weekend and, although the work was hard, it was worth it. To be part of community projects is so important to me and to push us to work in a different way (glowing 3D objects!) gets the brain working double-time. Thank goodness Michelle doesn’t mind getting involved in these projects with me.

The whole event was incredibly fun. Parading around downtown with our families, dancing in a crowd, looking at the other brilliant art installations, drinking hot chocolate and watching fireworks at the end. A great event for Fernie!
