The 2018 edition of BC’s biggest country music festival is underway Thursday through Sunday at Laketown Ranch; here are some things to keep in mind.
- The Laketown App now includes an interactive map which can tell you where you are on the festival grounds, and what’s around you. It also has info on the Laketown Rock Festival and other events. Search “Laketown Ranch” in your app store (iOS and Android only).
- Schedules for shuttles running from Lake Cowichan and Island Savings Centre in Duncan are over here.
- When you buy a ticket, beverage or raffle ticket, you’ll be helping to support the activities of the Laketown Ranch Benevolent Society, which donates more than $25,000 each year to local organizations which are doing important work in the community. More information on that initiative is here.
- Stay hydrated. You’ll find water stations throughout the venue. The cool refreshing waters of Cowichan Lake are just five minutes from the site, too.
PACK IN, PACK OUT: Please pick up your garbage and use the appropriate garbage, compost and recycling bins. Mom will be proud.
