Over the weekend, on May 5 and 6, East Coulee was home to yet, another successful SpringFest.

With three rooms to choose from in the community centre and school museum combined, hundreds of people showed up over two days to get a peek at some of their favourite bands.

Each performance had 45 minutes on stage with a grand total of 39 performers stretched over three different rooms.

"SpringFest was a blast," said Executive Director, Barb Steeves. "I talked to so many people who just had a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for better weather."

Steeves didn't have a total amount of people that attended SpringFest 2018, but noted that there was a high volume of foot traffic between all three venues.springfest3SpringFest 2018

"It was well attended and there was some wonderful music all weekend," she said.

All the performers and staff that made SpringFest happen this year, donated freely of their time. Steeves even comments that a musical group who performed was from northern Manitoba. Any money raised all went towards a good cause.

"It all goes back into helping the museum survive the winter months when we don't have the tourism traffic," Steeves concluded. "We don't charge a lot for admission in the summer so, it takes a lot to build up money(for the school museum)."

SpringFest will be back in East Coulee for the 2019 festival, next May.
