With the summer sun, comes a double batch of summer fun.
Swift Current will be welcoming two events back to the circuit this summer with the return of the Windscape Kite Festival and the Long Days Night Music Festival going from June 16 to 19.
Assistant Festival Organizer, Keely Williams, has the details for what they are looking for in helpers, workers, and go-getters this summer.
"We generally have about 250 people that fill over 300 volunteer shifts," educated Williams. "They are doing everything from helping kids, working with the public, directing and answering questions, to security."
There is a job for everyone, even those who don't wish to be out about in the crowds.
"If you want to kind of hide more behind the scenes than help with logistics, we also take volunteers for set up," offered Williams.
The Windscape Kite Festival is an event for anyone interested. Families are encouraged to bring picnic baskets, and anyone bringing an RV is reminded to park at the most southeast corner of the parking lot.
Attendees are reminded that the event can see a variety of weather, and should be prepared for a change in conditions, rain or shine.
This year, Long Days Night will feature a variety of artists. Leading the at-bat on June 16 will be Oral Fuentes. Next up on the 17 is Yukon Blonde with Wild Black. Following up the day after on the 18 is Tanika Charles with Vissia. All these shows will have their doors open at 7:30 p.m. and start at 8:30 p.m.
The last show of the four title docket features JJ Shiplett. That show is unique in that it will have doors opening at 7 p.m. and the show starting at 8 p.m.
