Fan favourite kicks off Twilight Series in Agassiz

Stacey McKitrick part of Juno winning collaboration Waving Flag

Stacey McKitrick will kick off the Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series on Thursday

There are three great concerts planned for this summer’s Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series.

The shows will run every other Thursday, beginning July 18 with a Country in the Park theme night, featuring Stacey McKitrick.

The crowds loved her at last year’s Canada Day celebrations in Agassiz, and she has a strong fan base throughout the Fraser Valley.

McKitrick has performed for Great Big Sea and Lady Antebellum. She’s already the proud recipient of a Juno Award, for her work on the collaborative song Waving Flag. Her hit, Friends for Life, was written by Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, who offered her the song.

You can watch the video online at staceymckitrick.com, or come out to see her perform live in Pioneer Park.

Other Twilight Series to come this summer will be Rockin’ the Park on Aug. 1, featuring Awake O Sleeper, and Rhythm in the Park on Aug. 15, with Pancho and Sal.

This year, the concert series coincides with the Agassiz Farm Fresh Market. The Agassiz Fire Department will be on hand selling hot dogs and drinks, Prospera Credit Union will be there with the  Popcorn and the Early Childhood Development’s Success by Six program will operate a bouncy castle for the kids.

Sponsors again this year are the Prospera Credit Union, Agassiz Harrison Lions Club and the Agassiz Harrison Observer.

Shows begin at 6:30 p.m.
