Summer Festival Kick-off
The holiday weekend is here and there are plenty of things to do in the mountains. Several area festivals kicked off the three day weekend Friday night.
One of them is the Mountain Sports Festival at Carrier Park. The family-friendly party is expected to get bigger and better as the weekend goes on. It's a free events that runs through Sunday. A breezy night is a welcome sight. Last year's festival was held during a heat wave, making a tough bike ride even harder.
Down the river, River Fest was also swinging into summer. The Friday only party is in it's second year. It's the first of five concerts this season. The next concert will be held on June 14th.
