Outdoor market returns to Trail on Friday

Musical entertainment added to offerings on Esplanade

Music will be a new element at the Trail Market on the Esplanade this year.

Live Cuban music will be kick-starting this season off on Friday.

The band is from Santiago de Cuba and is touring around B.C. this year and requested a busking spot at the first Trail Market.

“We were ecstatic to receive the request” said Norm Casler, executive director of the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce and Market Committee member.

“Live entertainment at the market is just one of the things that make it so great, and to have such a brilliant and talented musical group offer their time for our event is very exciting.”

Sweet sounds will become a regular thing at the market and it’s still accepting applicants who are interested in performing and wanting to show off their musical talent.

“It’s the perfect addition to the market,” continued Casler. “Market-goers can enjoy the musical sounds of Cuba while shopping and strolling along the picturesque Esplanade.

“We hope to encourage other musical talents in the area to sign up for a busking spot at one of the upcoming markets.”

This year, wide varieties of vendors will be there and an abundance of arts and crafts will be brimming the market.

The market will occur every second Friday at 10 a.m.-2 p.m. from June 6 to Oct.10. Vendors and entertainment spots are still available and can be booked by calling the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce at 250-368-3144. Vendor rules and regulations and application forms are also available on the city’s website at Trail.ca.
