CONCERTS IN THE PARK 2018 HEADLINER: Platinum Blonde!
The Toronto band that was at the forefront of the New Wave of the early 1980s, is still producing fresh material and performing live at the best venues across the country. 5 times Juno nominated and selling multi-platinum records, can there be a better headliner for Concerts in the Park 2018?! "Crying over You" and "Doesn't Really Matter" are just 2 of the hits of an impressive repertoire that is coming to Terrace. It's live, it's outdoors and thanks to sponsorship, it's free of charge. Platinum Blonde will take the stage at George Little Park around 7:00 pm, Saturday evening, August 4th.

RIVERBOAT DAYS 2018
Starting the August long weekend, Riverboat Days is the largest community festival in northwest British Columbia, highlighting the culture and heritage of the area. The longstanding crowd-gatherers of the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island, Beach Blast Volleyball, and Concerts in the Park never fail to please. Concerts features the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park. Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2018 encourage that child to join a crafts workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare in the "Tastes of Terrace" tour, enter a team in the Riverboat Day's Soccer Tournament or join a walking tour of the downtown and learn some surprising stories about the area's history. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.
