Experiencing PONDEROSA ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL 2017

{2017 PONDEROSA ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL - ROCK CREEK BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA; VANCOUVER FAMILY LIFESTYLE DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER}

This year my husband's band, BANDiDA, was invited to perform at the 2017 Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival which has takes place in a small community in British Columbia called Rock Creek.  It is a 3-day festival weekend that fills the community's fair grounds where festivalgoers camp in tents on the riverside or in RVs by the roadside.  Activities during the weekend included morning yoga, river cruising on your floatie of choice (shuttles provided to a nearby bridge up river), watching artists work on several art instalments around the festival grounds, or eating at the several food vendors.  Kids were everywhere.  Everyone was just... chill.  It was great!

What was also great was that I got to capture not only my husband and his bandmates but we got to reconnect with Jon Cohen, whom we had met a few years earlier when he came through Vancouver for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival.  His band Jon Cohen Experimental were also performing at Ponderosa and so happens to be on stage right after my husband's band.  

Thanks to Kia and Kris for all their hard work putting on a fantastic 3-day weekend long show!  And a BIG THANKS to the Rock Creek community for their hard work and making everyone feel so welcome.

Can't wait for next year!
