It’s a party! The Mission Heritage Association invites you to come to Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday, August 28 for the finale of the 25th season of the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series, and Envision Financial’s Night of Thanks Corn Roast. Grab a cob of free hot buttered corn and enjoy the sounds of The Mighty Fraser Big Band. The concert runs from 7 to 8 p.m., rain or shine.

The Mighty Fraser Big Band is a group of 19 high-energy jazz musicians from across the Lower Mainland, who share a passion for keeping the music and sound of the Big Band era alive in our communities. Their repertoire ranges from 1940s swing dance classics to modern big band arrangements in various styles. They have performed for all kinds of audiences, in venues from ski lodges to dance halls, churches (Jazz Vespers) to parks. They jump at any opportunity to get people on their feet and bring a toe-tapping smile to their faces.

Donations of cash or non-perishable food items are welcome at this Full Cupboard Friday, in support of St Joseph’s Food Bank. To learn more about The Full Cupboard and Full Cupboard nights, visit thefullcupboard.ca/.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a range of live music at Fraser River Heritage Park. Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or treat themselves to a special pre-concert meal at the Blackberry Kitchen or The Log Cabin Café. Admission to the concerts is free, though donations to this community-based series are appreciated.
