Little Miss Higgins gets the crowd dancing at the Midsummer Music Festival in Smithers

Midsummer Music Festival another great weekend

The music was so good even the rain let up at the 29th annual Smithers Midsummer Music Festival.

With four different stages, the Midsummer Music Festival had something for everyone and judging by the smiles and the dancing, everyone found their something.

The music was so good, even the rain let up to give everyone a chance to thoroughly enjoy the weekend of music from local artists such as The Racket and the Bulkley Valley Youth Fiddlers to the Juno nominated Kerplunks to entertain children and parents alike, as well as headliners Good for Grapes, King Crow and the Ladies from Hell, Little Miss Higgins, The River and The Road and Watasun.
