Jamboree fills air with music

Dozens of bands made the trip from all over northern Alberta and British Columbia to play at the Hoedown Jamboree at Triangle July 21-23. Mainly country music was played to the delight of hundreds attending. The jamboree returned after a three-year hiatus [2019] due to COVID restrictions. Many commented on the friendliness shown by jamboree organizers and promised to return.

Dancing was not limited to the covered stage. Many also took part in dancing outside.
