Talented musicians close out festival’s final day

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the three-day Cavendish Beach Music Festival and so were the acts, including headliners Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes and Eric Church.

The 11-year-old festival opened under brilliant sunshine and sweltering temperatures, breaking records for central PEI, and closed exactly the same way, with the exception of a rainstorm before Ms Underwood’s show.

It was a totally blissed out three days, which drew fans, young and old, from across PEI, the country and the world. It’s a safe bet many will be making the pilgrimage back to Cavendish next summer.

Day 2 of the Cavendish Beach Festival, July 6, opened under blue skies and sweltering temperatures, but a stiffening breeze took away some of the scorching heat. Hitting the stage were Canadian country star Livy Jeanne, winners of Season 2 of the CTV hit series, the Launch (Cassiopea, Michelle Treacy, Olivia Lunny, T. Thomason, Maddie Storvold and Saveria), Shawn Austin, Chad Brownlee and Russell Dickerson. Closing out the evening was Nashville superstar and multi-platinum songstress Carrie Underwood.

Scorching temperatures were no match for the fevered excitement of thousands of country fans descended on the Cavendish Beach Music Festival grounds on Day 1 of the festival, which opened with chart-topping Calgary country artist Ben Chase (born and raised on PEI) and concluded with a performance later that evening by multi-platinum American singer and songwriter Hunter Hayes.

The parade will go on, even with only one float

Rainy, windy weather forced organizers to cancel the North Rustico Canada Day parade but that didn’t stop one family from participating anyway.

Jonathan and Christine Townsend and their grandkids, Jake and Maggie Moore, were adding final touches to their float in the Lions Club parking lot.

“You can’t cancel your birthday,” said Christine, with a laugh.

“You can’t cancel Canada’s birthday,” said Jonathan.

And then, with a toot of their truck’s horn and a “Happy Canada Day” cheer, they were off to the downtown, flags and balloons rippling in the wind.
