Metal and glass containers are banned from SunFest, security staff advised, while site boss Charlotte Fisher urged folks to "car pool and shuttle" to Cowichan Exhibition grounds hosting some 30,000 fans this weekend.

Friday's hazy, warm weather staved off severe heat problems while police and security guards handled a few medical problems, and a couple of booze offences, the News Leader Pictorial learned about Wideglide Entertainment's well-run festival.

A rainbow that shone during gentleman George Canyon's wide set Friday night best symbolized the harmonious colours of Cowichan's and B.C.'s biggest country-music festival.

"Very professional," Canyon said of the event spanning Thursday and tomorrow when superstar headliner Tim McGraw hits the finale stage.

Abbey Freedman agreed. "Its a four-day party; country people are family."

"It's a concert that's continuous," noted Adam Smith

Saturday's lineup features Dean Brody, Blackjack Billy, Rae Solomon, Quoia, The Tumblin' Dice, The Electric Kool-Aid, Lynnea Bruce, and the Kelly Girvan Band.
