Thousands crowd park for annual festival

Music lovers flocked to Mission for the Folk Festival

The Zhambai Trio performed Zimbabwean music at this past weekend's Mission Folk Music Festival.

The weather was perfect for a weekend of folk music at Mission’s annual popular event.

This year marked the 26th annual Mission Folk Music Festival, and featured performers from all corners of the globe, and some from closer to home.

Locarno entertained the crowd Saturday night, while the legendary Jim Byrnes played his soulful blues on Sunday.
