Popular bands from Three Hills and Stettler can be heard at the East Coulee SpringFest on Saturday.
The group Domino from Stettler and the band Ruth Purves and the 581 from Three Hills are among those keeping history alive by playing at this annual fundraiser for the East Coulee School Museum — a designated provincial historic site in the Drumheller region.
SpringFest, held at the East Coulee Community Hall and Museum, is the longest running festival in the Badlands. It goes from noon to midnight, and features a line up of talented musical artists who have all donated their time and music to the event.
Transportation to the festival will be provided between Drumheller and East Coulee on Saturday. Advance tickets, on sale until Friday, are $25 for adults, $22.50 for students/seniors, $20 for teens (kids are free) online from ecsmuseum.ca Ticket prices jump by $5 at the door.
On Friday night, a “blast-off” party will be held at the East Coulee Motel and Tavern. Starting from 6 p.m., it includes a live CKUA broadcast, as well as performances by the Kirby Sewell Band and The Sadlier-Brown Band.
