Music festival authorized for Mulhurst Bay

Pigeon Lake Music Festival will run Aug. 5 and 6, 12 noon to 10:30 p.m.

An inaugural music festival for the Hilah Ayers Wilderness RV Park in Mulhurst Bay has been given approval by the County of Wetaskiwin council.

The decision came during council’s July 18 meeting.

“I think it would be good for the community,” said Coun. Larry McKeever.

The music festival will be held Aug. 5 and 6 from approximately 12 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., according to the information given by applicant Kyle Knutson, presented to councillors in their agenda packages.

The 45.17 acre property, located at SE 24-47-1-W5M is zoned recreational.

According to Knutson’s details the festival is hoping to see 1,000 attendees in its first year. There will be at least one security officer to every 100 people present and no alcohol will be served.

“We’ve been working with them to get notification out to all the residents of Mulhurst Bay,” said assistant CAO Rod Hawken.

Hawken informed council he had received one call in complaint. “Otherwise, most comments I’ve received have been positive.”
