Experience Lumby Live when the village plays host to family friendly live music every Wednesday in July and August.

Now in its second year, Lumby Live takes place in Arbor Park, downtown Lumby, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and features musical acts performing everything from classic rock and bluegrass to Chilean/Andean music.

“Each week brings a different flavour to the stage, with all performances being family friendly, alcohol free, and absolutely no cost to attend,” said one of the organizers, Randal Ostafichuk, with Tutor-Tech Computers.

This year’s series has been made possible by donations from Lumby IDA Pharmacy, D&M Auto Recycling, Gilbert Parts Depot, Monashee Dental Center, Lumby Lions, Valley First Credit Union, White Valley Parks and Recreation, and the efforts of volunteers who make Lumby Live happen.

New this year is the Wednesday Night Market, happening every Wednesday night from 5 to 9 p.m. in the Arbor Park Mall parking lot adjacent to Lumby Live.

“With all sorts of vendors, services, and food from handmade soap and tea leaf readings to smokies and hot dogs, there is something for everyone,” said Ostafichuk.

Lumby Live continues this Wednesday with a performance by the Marv Machura Orchestra, followed by Cheaper Than a Porsche Aug. 5, The Mabel Lickers Aug. 12, and Kevin Campbell and Friends Aug. 19. DJ Steve Nagy will also spin some tunes on each night.
