“People are just not coming,” says Joan Hieta, organizer for the event, “and that’s pretty sad.”

The following is the lineup of musicians to greet participants at the Centennial Hall area, Saturday, Sept. 15.

All times are approximate.

Bailey Callihoo, and Katherine Worsley. These are local, solo musicians who often grace the stage during open mic events such as Summer Nights.

11 a.m. – The Good Time Boys.

12 p.m. – Joint Chiefs.

1 p.m. – Darryl Alsbrook and guest. Alsbrook is a Great Lake Walk regular, and plays original and cover songs, with a folky twinge.

2 p.m. – Skelig.

3 p.m. – Mary Egan. Egan is well-known in the Cowichan Lake area for her honest song writing.

4 p.m. – Steven Bell.

5 p.m. – Ray Harvey.

6 p.m. – Parker Smith.

7 p.m. –  Jan Matthews

8 p.m. –  Darryl Alsbrook and guest.

There will also be food vendors on hand for both walkers and their cheerleaders to enjoy.

These vendors include the Munch Box from Youbou, Tim Hortons, and Team Challenge, a rehab group that will be serving up some barbecued delights.

“These are an amazing group of people,” said Hieta.

The closing ceremony will take place in the Upper Centennial Hall. This is where awards will be handed out in various categories, such as first male and female runners, first walker, oldest male and oldest female to complete, among others.
