White Swan music festival and car show. July 13

Fraser Lake’s White Swan music festival and car show a big hit!

Fraser Lake's White Swan music festival brings out music fans and automotive enthusiasts.

The eighth annual White Swan Music Festival and Car Show was well attended last weekend with dozens of Fraser Lake residents coming down to the White Swan park to enjoy the warm weather, listen to some old fashioned country music and breathe in the sweet perfume of car exhaust from a few dozen classic cars.

The music festival takes place every summer in White Swan park, of which it is named after.

Events were MC’d by old school country cowboy Buckshot Bob.

Both Saturday and Sunday were full days with open mic performances starting as early as 10 a.m.

Performances by locals and visitors alike went on both days with performances by Vern Charlton, Bryan Worrall and Ron Meadows, the Lakeview Bible Chapel, Mud River and others.

Sunday was the headline date with a show of vehicular force as dozens of auto-nuts drove their prides and joys into the park for an afternoon of automobile worship.

 

Among the collage of gleaming chrome and ruby-tinted side-panelling were a few choice picks including a 1957 Corvette and a 1966 Harley Davidson.
