Kulth vows return

Although attendance could have been better at the first Kulth Festival in Coombs, organizer David Fisher said he was pleased.

“All and all I think it turned out well. It could have been better with numbers, and weather was a big factor with that.”

Fisher said he and his festival partners knew it would be an investment going in but he just wanted some reassurance that people of all ages were having a good time, which he got.

He said watching his son and other children enjoying the entertainment Sunday morning, and the feedback he got from people at the exits in the evenings, proved to him the festival should go on next year, rain or shine.

“We had a lot of happy people,” he said. “It is an all-weather festival and the people who did come out ... loved it.”

Fisher said he would like to try and establish the festival over the next few years, but he would change a few things next year, such as ending a bit earlier Sunday and changing the admission for that day.

He said the crowd was smaller for headliner Ron Sexsmith at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday than it was for Stars the previous evening, and this could have been due to people heading off to catch the ferry, he said. 

Despite some torrential downpours and a financial loss, Fisher said he and his fellow organizers are excited to do it all again next year.
