Busy Preparing for NWR Beach Festival

The North West River (NWR) Beach Festival Committee is busy preparing for the annual event.

Leander Baikie is with the committee.

He says this year is a big one for the festival.

2010 marks the 25th anniversary for Labrador’s largest outdoor music festival.

Baikie says they have some big events planned to mark the milestone.

JUNO Award-winning country star Charlie Major will be performing at the event.

Major will join a long list of Labrador performers including the Nunatsiavut Drum Dancers and Karrie Obed.

Baikie says he’s also glad to welcome the Gregoire Boys from Natuashish.

A magician from Manitoba, Eric Leclerc, will also be joining the list of performers.

Baikie says he’s expecting a larger crowd this year than others with the opening of the highway from southern Labrador.

The North West River Beach Festival takes place the July 24-25 at the Lester Burry Memorial Park.
