I want to thank everyone who came downtown tonight to celebrate the CBC Tragically Hip live stream show! The weather was big-time-iffy and staff where put in a difficult situation trying to balance what has been a month long build up of excitement for an outdoor showing, with the safety of people and equipment if a thunderstorm rolled through. Yet staff, (with maybe a bit of arm-twisting), decided to give it a go outside! Thank goodness they did! By my estimate there has to have been around 2-3,000 people at Market Square!
The opening acts were also great! Local singer song writer Myke Rush & The Speakeasies!
And here’s the Speakeasies!
The local cancer society was on hand taking donations and I thank all of you who donated to this worthy cause!
Well, what a night! We have a wonderful, caring community and we came together for an evening with mixed emotions, and I wouldn’t have wanted to share it with anyone else!
