Every Thursday from July 5 to Aug. 16 Boitanio Park will come alive with Performances in the Park.

Historically Performances in the Park has showcased local and provincial musical talent but 2012 marks a new turn in the road for this event.  Come out and see all types and ages of performing artists.

Children’s performances run from 5 to 6 p.m.

Music, dance, storytelling and theatre performances start at 7 p.m. Local teenager, Robyn Ferguson, will kick off the series tonight at 5 p.m. with her renditions of country and soft rock. Later at 7 p.m., Doug Koyama will take the stage and captivate the audience with songs of life, love, peace and truth, yet by listening to his lyrics one would never know he uses looping, a capella and improv to create music to the ears.
