Music Fest in Esquimalt creating a west side buzz

Tuesday night tradition brings fun and music to the Township

The Memorial Park Music Fest in Esquimalt has become a gathering place for residents and visitors alike.

This summer the park will be the site of seven performances of old favorites and new performers. Families arrive with chairs, picnic lunches and sunhats and settle in for a great offering of free entertainment on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30 p.m.

The Music Fest began June 26 and runs through Aug. 7 and features a variety of genres and musical styles from blues to country to zydeco and pop hits.
