Blues Fest heats up Deer Lake Park
Deer Lake Park was a hot place to be Saturday.
And that wasn't just from the sun.
The terraced lawn leading down from the Shadbolt Centre was already awash with lawn chairs, blankets, parasols and sunscreen-lathered music fans by mid-afternoon at the 15th annual Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival.
The crowd enjoyed a blues-heavy lineup of 12 acts on three stages, including headliners Big Sugar.
Between sets they were able to shop for everything from tie-dye tank tops to handcrafted guitars in the vendors' marketplace, cool off with a refreshing sangria, cool down in the misting tent or fuel up from a selection of food trucks.
