If you’re in the mood to listen to some live tunes while also having the opportunity to check out some live animals, you might want to make room in your calendar for a visit to the B.C. Wildlife Park.
Music in the (Wildlife) Park is an event that will take place at 7 p.m. from Aug. 27 to Aug. 29 in the B.C. Wildlife Park’s Amphitheatre.
The Aug. 27 show will feature Henry Small, the Aug. 28 show will feature Margit Sky Project and Shawna Palmer, while the Aug. 29 show will feature Post-Modern Connection and JP Lancaster & His Dirt On.
Tickets are $20 for the all-ages shows. Groups of two, four and six will permitted, but physical distancing will be strictly enforced.
Anyone with COVID-19 or similar symptoms and those who has travelled outside of the country recently are asked to stay home.
There are only 50 tickets available for each night and the Aug. 27 show is already sold out, though tickets for the other nights are available through kamtix.ca.
This is the second time the B.C. Wildlife Park has had performers at its amphitheatre since the start of the pandemic, following a recent small event featuring JoJo Mason.
“I’m really happy to support and help anything with live music or live entertainment,” said Glenn Grant, the park’s executive director and general manager.
“I think it’s something that is drastically missing.”
On top of the physical-distancing measures, hand sanitizer will be available, but concessions will not be open.
Grant said people who want to enjoy snacks or non-alcoholic beverages may bring their own.
People are welcome to bring chairs and blankets, as well.
