This morning the PNE announced its unprecedented entertainment lineup for the fair’s 100th year. The acts are huge to celebrate this monumental milestone for the Pacific National Exhibition. Check out who’s on the bill so far:
Kevin Costner and Modern West
Huey Lewis and the News
Spirit of the West
John Hiatt and The Combo / Los Lobos
Little River Band
The Road Hammers
All of these nightly concerts are entirely FREE with your fair admission. View a full schedule here.
There will be the “100 Years of Fun Parade” once daily including a cast of 50 performers and 12 giant balloons (think Macy’s Thanksgiving Day paradae). There’s also the Kaboom! fireworks show nightly, and performances from the Metro Vancouver Naval 2010 Centennial Tattoo, the U.S. Marine Corps Band, the Seaforth Highlanders and the Vancouver Police Pipe Band.
Everyone’s favourites will also be back again this year as well — the Superdogs, Logger Sports, and the legendary Dal Richards with his orchestra.
This landmark season of the PNE will run Saturday, August 21 to Sunday, September 6, 2010.
