Performance in the Park this Thursday evening features John Michael Lind performing from 6 to 7 p.m. and Saturn Alien on stage from 7 to 8 p.m.

One man on six strings, Lind is a new Canadian songwriter with miles of sweet heartbreak on his aching old chassis, producing music that helps people to feel, says concert promoter Leah Selk.

Stand with your mouth agape as fiercely original Saturn Alien takes the stage, Selk adds.

Defying easy categorization, since its inception, Saturn Alien promises a good time to lovers of funk, rock, swing and smooth greasy soul, she says.

The Montreal based band Saturn Alien includes former lakecity resident Louis Butterfield, along with Kieran Jarvis, Mike Baelde, and Kevin Geloso.

The Farmers’ and Vendors’ Mini-Market at Performances in the Park runs from 5 to 8 p.m. with produce and products available from Road’s End Vegetable Company, Puddle Produce, Windy Creek Farm, Walk-Rite Shoes, BFF Fashions, Paper Airplane, Piece of Home, Barefoot Books, Cariboo Fruit Stand and others.

The Community Arts Council is offering a Kids’ Arts Corner from 6 to 8 p.m. with crafts such as rock painting, and paper airplanes.

Cody‘s Bannock, Smashin’ Smoothies and Taylor Made Cakes will also have snacks available.

Performances in the park is presented by the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society, the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake with additional support from ArtsVest British Columbia, run by Canadian Heritage, the Government of British Columbia and Business for the Arts, with help from local business sponsors.
