Merritt, Festivals & Events
In Merritt, BC we celebrated the 17th Annual Mountain Music Festival July 9-12, 2009.
With top performers like Johnny Reid and Kenny Chesney just to name a few, the event turned out to be a success along with the downtown street mall where I found many items to buy not to mention the good food.
I really enjoyed the the Merritt Walk of Stars and the downtown stage also had a great turn out of artists that were playing at the Mountainfest this year as well as some good local talent.
A highlight for me was Casey Clarke and the CMT Crew filming downtown and out at the Quilchena Hotel, it will be awesome to be able to watch the "The Chevy Cross Canada Countdown" on CMT during the month of August and see my home town of Merritt.
