Is the promised entertainment “Keeping it Real”?

For the past three consecutive weeks, I have travelled to Centennial Park to take in the entertainment

Dear Editor,

For the past three consecutive weeks, I have travelled to Centennial Park to take in the entertainment that has been advertised in the “Town Times” column of your paper.

Unfortunately, the groups that were booked to entertain for these weeks, were all “no shows”. While we had a brief thunderstorm roll through this evening prior to 7 pm, the skies cleared nicely in time to allow a performance, and weather was not a factor in the previous weeks.

I am not sure where the responsibility for these events lie, but it is truly disappointing to arrange a park outing with friends, only to find that a walk and singing to myself, is the entertainment.

In contrast, during July I attended a Wednesday night Concert in the Park in Lacombe, which turned out to be a fabulous evening with great music, a concession stand and several merchandise vendors. While I try hard to support our town, I have to admit that my money was left in the hands of Lacombe vendors to enjoy.

While our summer is just about gone and similar events are probably curtailed until next year, let’s see Ponoka if we can up the ante next year and make this a fun, weekly summer attraction.

Keepin it Real Ponoka
