A large-scale musical party at Mesachie Lake is set to take place again next year, organizers say.

“Oh absolutely,” one of the event’s key organizers Michelle Gunderson said, when asked whether or not it’ll take place again next year. “It was a huge success. Any feedback that we got was positive.”

This year’s musical entertainment began at 4 p.m., Saturday, September 17, and didn’t let up until the early morning hours.

Eight bands came from throughout the Cowichan Valley. Gunderson’s local Hot Mama Burlesque Troupe also performed a few tongue-in-cheek numbers.

“The attitude of the people was wonderful, and there were smiles everywhere,” Gunderson said.
