The rocking river music festival is on this weekend with president and performer Ken Hess with the eight ball. The festival is at the former Merritt Mountain Festival grounds.

There are some new glass cases at the Canadian Country Hall of Fame on Quilchena Avenue, downtown Merritt; they include clothing from some lessor known artists from eastern Canada, as  well as famous ones.

The availability of tickets have never been a problem in the past for any event.\, held at the grounds in Merritt. Local volunteers are being used at the site including Chamber of Commerce ones.

A pop up store organized by 5 local artists is also at the CCMH of Fame.
