It’s Friday, Saturday, Sunday, June 21st through 23rd. Attendance is free. Ribs are not. The entire venue sits contained within the Pacific Western Brewing parking lot, precluding the need for a beer garden. After 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, the event shifts to an adults-only concert running until 11:00 pm. On Sunday, the event expands to include a public market and is open to all ages from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
When Ben Nemtin, the creator and cast member of the MTV series The Buried Life, took the stage at last Friday’s gala, it was only a crescendo within an opus. The evening commemorated The Bucket List Initiative, aimed at raising money for the Prince George Hospice Society. It was a celebration of one’s drive for personal happiness, and that such contentment rarely comes from the acquisition of currency or the flaunting of ornamented accessories, but rather the amassing of cherished memories.
