Although Canada Day in Salmon Arm was different than it has been in years past, both new features drew lots of fan love.

Along with the steadfast deliciousness of the Legion pancake breakfast, the two Bobs & Lolo shows at Song Sparrow Hall hosted by the Shuswap Children’s Association were a big hit, along with great country tunes over at the fairgrounds in Salmon Arm for the Canada Day CountryFest, with music courtesy of Ben Klick, Tanner Dawson and Aaron Halliday.
