Wasn’t that a party?

It could have been the whiskey, it might have been the bands, or the nearly 3,000 fans, but what a Canada Day party Killarney pulled off!

FAN FAVOURITES – A lively crowd of close to 2,900 folks had an amazing time at Killarney’s own country music fest on Canada Day last Friday.

BLAME IT ON THE WHISKEY – Whether it was the whiskey, or just Trevor Panczak’s generous nature, the country singer/songwriter (below, in red, singing “Blame It On The Whiskey”) gifted a guitar to young lad Liam (above) who was enjoying his show. A colossal Canada Day crowd enjoyed Panczak’s performance, with the festival attendance swelling to nearly 3,000 by the time the Hunter Brothers hit the stage at 9:30 p.m.

HEADLINING HUNTER BROTHERS – Hunter Brothers put on an awesome show to wrap up the festival before the fabulous fireworks display. “The Killarney Community Events Committee (KCEC) planned this event for a year, and I think we pulled off the greatest concert that Killarney has ever seen,” said organizer Liana Smith. “The feedback has all been overwhelmingly positive. All the hours we put into this event were so worth the benefit to the community, and we hope to do it again.”

HICKTOWN KICKOFF – Popular Treherne country rock cover band Hicktown (above) kicked off the Canada Day concert with performances at 3 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. Keep scrolling for more Hunter Brothers highlights from Liana Smith, followed by photos of all the free events throughout the big day.



BIRTHDAY BASH FOR EVERYBODY – Canada Day started off with a pancake breakfast at the Legion, followed by free activities for all, including a sandcastle building competition, art at the Heritage Home, face painting at the Museum, bouncy waterslides at the beach, a 4-H Musical Ride, and a rocking first showing of Treherne’s Hicktown. Hicktown played a second set to kick off the paid country fest, which was followed by a fabulous fireworks display to wrap up our country’s birthday. What a blast!
