While our summers are now enhanced by Wednesdays on the Water, in 1967 we had Music on the Mountain.
Though obviously not the first Summerland Town Band which was formed in 1904, this was the 1967 version of the band, established to celebrate Canada’s Centennial.
This performance took place at the very top of Giant’s Head at the opening of the park and unveiling of the cairn, Summerland’s centennial project.
The view may be fantastic from up there, but Peach Orchard Beach is a better venue for enjoyable musical concerts; it’s pleasantly cool by the water and does not require a hike up the mountain.
