There was a moment during the Alex Cuba performance that I stood back to look at the Festival venue, stage and festival-goers. It was the perfect view of a perfect moment. I wanted the clock to stop! So many smiles, so many people having fun. The space in front of the stage was jammed with dancers, the hillside full of folks groovin’ to the beat in their chairs, children running around in the secure & safe space. There were lineups at the refreshment tent and the food vendors were handing out delicious treats and meals. And the main stage was rockin’ with a latin-beat from Alex Cuba and his band. A perfect moment in time. So, I want to thank everyone who joined us this weekend for our 7thannual Festival at Kinsmen Beach to experience all the fantastic ‘moments’ of the event.

Despite the inclement weather on Friday, we still reached our goal for attendance. Our attendees sure are a hardy group of mountain folk!

Thanks to all the businesses, organizations and grant funders that support our Festival. Please check out our website to see a full list of Sponsors and Friends of the Fest ( Thank you to the staff at the Pioneer who promote and support all the valley events. A very sincere and deeply felt thank you to all the volunteers, contractors and IMF Board of Directors. We ride this success completely due to the untiring dedication of this group. And thanks to the Columbia Valley Arts Council who give us their trust and respect to operate this Festival on their behalf.

We hope to see you again next year. And for those that missed us this time around…make a plan to join us for some more very special moments in 2020.
