Bands, bubbles and bonding at MarketFest

Hundreds of Nelsonites attended the monthly event, which featured street music from Cam Penner and Sofiella Watt.

The July MarketFest featured bands, bubbles and bonding as hundreds of Nelsonites took to Baker Street.

A slight drizzle earlier in the afternoon transitioned into a humid, sunny evening as Sofiella Watt and the Huckleberry Bandits performed on one end of the street and Cam Penner performed with Jon Wood on the other.

That was followed up by performances from OQO, Gabriel Palatichi,¬†Erin Eat Your Heart Out and the Showcats, Sunshine Drive and the Good ol’ Goats.

In all, there were seven acts on two stages and over four hours of live music.

Federal candidates Don Johnston, Bill Green and Wayne Stetski were in attendance, meeting residents and handing out campaign material. Hundreds of vendors were set up, and dogs roamed freely with their owners.

The next MarketFest will be held on Friday, August 21. For more information visit West Kootenay Ecosociety on Facebook or at ecosociety.ca.
