This is the last weekend of Riverboats Days 2010. There are a few events as well as some regular weekly events. The biggest event and a great way to end this year’s festivities is the annual Métis Riverside Festival. The festival is at “Har-Lee’s Place” which is about 14km north on Kalum Lake Drive. The festival includes music of many different styles and will be running throughout the weekend. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE
There is also another festival running this weekend starting tonight in Iskut. The Honouring the Elders Ceremony & Music Festival is to honour the 15 elders who were arrested while blockading the road to the sacred headwaters and thereby was the start to creating an awareness to prevent Royal Dutch Shell from drilling for coalbed methane. The festival will be taking place at Eagle River Fairgrounds. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE
