This week’s item on the list is annual Oliver’s Music in the Park! The first concert starts this Thursday July 5 from 6:30-8 pm down at the old Oliver’s Visitor Center.  If you’re not quite sure where this is, another description is east side of the old CPR station, which faces the river. From the sounds of it this is past goer’s favourite spot enjoy the beat, so why not stick with it right?

Your probably wondering which band is playing tonight, right?  Drum roll please.... KETTLE VALLEY BRAKEMEN! This a great band composed of 3 men and a lady, serenading us with great tunes of railway songs. When was the last time you heard this kind of music?
