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.
