The Nicola Valley will be having a music festival this summer in August ,on the 21,22 ,23rd and 24th at the old Merritt Mountain Music festival grounds. There is a veterans preference and they say you don’t need to have a motor cycle to come.  The site shows the controversial pastime of sitting in the river cooling off with more then just the river water.

The bus of the organizer has been seen about Merritt many times in the last weeks.
