A concert will be held in Nickle Plate Park on Saturday, August 29 from 4 to 9 p.m. to raise money for Rossland’s skatepark.
The event will feature three local bands, including John Lee’s Hooker—a four-piece blues-driven garage rock band—and Dizzy Spell—an alternative rock trio.
There will also be a refreshment garden and food vendors on site, like wood fired pizza and Chewy’s Mountain Dogs.
Richie Samuelson, who’s organizing the event, says all proceeds will be donated to the Rossland Skatepark Foundation to help fund building the park.
The event is being entirely volunteer run.
“I want to thank [people volunteering their time] and the bands,” said Samuelson.
Kids and families are welcome, and those interested in tickets can contact Samuelson at 250-362-9005.
