Bands on the Beach 2011
Saturday September 3rd the first annual Bands on the Beach took place and was a great success. This inaugural concert was also the grand opening of the new Beach entertainment Venue and the day could not have been better with sun, sand and great tunes making for a perfect day. Mayor Ken Becotte and Chamber Director Sonja Reyerse did the official opening of the new facility and then handed the microphone over to Curtis Pope “the Pope” of Country 107.1 the events official MC. With four great groups on hand “the Pope” had a busy afternoon but luckily was assisted by his enthusiastic young son.
With the sun shining down and not a cloud in the sky it was the pefect day to lay back on the grass and enjoy the sights and sounds of Harrison Hot Springs. While “Bands on the Beach” was only put together at the last minute the Harrison business community rallied behind the event. Sponsors included: The Village of Harrison Hot Springs, Tourism Harrison, The Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce, Savvy Fashions, The Springs RV Resort, Crazy Fish Bistro, The Glencoe Motel & RV, Harrison Heritage House, BC Sportfishing Group, Muddy Waters, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Old Settler Pub, 3A Network Group, and Harrison Lake Retreats.
