The North Pacific Cannery hosts after a decade of renovation work

The North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward saw the revival of its music festival on July 15.

It has been a decade since Rolling on the River, and last Saturday the Intertidal Music Festival kicked off its first year at the cannery with three different stages and 18 musical acts performing from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m.

The event was made possible after several conservation projects were completed that costed more than $5 million, with much of the funding coming from the province, Parks Canada, the Port of Prince Rupert and many other organizations.

More than 700 people were at the festival to experience the music, food vendors, beer gardens and busker stations. The day went smoothly with the help of 100 volunteers who came out to the event.
