Style Photography shoots Dancin Barefoot Music Festival

The annual Dancin' Barefoot in the Park Festival  is definitely a great event for all ages. It was a gorgeous sunny Saturday at Cousins Park in Peachland, with a great lineup of musical talent that played until the wee hours of the morning. There was plenty of food, local crafts, a beer garden, and a VIP tent.

The Teen Talent Competition took place in the afternoon, and was judged by local celebrities. The headline band was well-known Canadian band Chilliwack who did a "meet and greet" to sign autographs to lucky contestants after the show. Other bands included local and international artists: Mystic Bowie, Young Uns, John Lee Sanders, Out of Eden, and Sleddogs.

History (from Dancin' Barefoot website):

Terry MacGillivray founded Dancin' Barefoot in 2007. He wanted to share and encourage entertainers to fulfill their dreams and passions as an artist. In addition, he wanted to have an outdoor concert for all the local talent to be able to perform in their community and for everyone to enjoy a rockin’ concert.
Sadly, Terry MacGillivray passed away suddenly April 18, 2008. His wife Valerie MacGillivray and daughter, Patricia Cheyne decided to keep Terry’s dream alive and incorporate their own visions for Dancin’ Barefoot.
Patricia and Valerie added the Teen Talent Competition in the afternoon of the concert. In collaboration with the Teen Talent Competition, Patricia Cheyne has founded a charity, T-Mac Music for Children to encourage and assist young artists in their musical paths.
