The blackberry, one of BC’s favourite fruits, is set to be lauded big-time at the Powell River Blackberry Festival, a juicy jubilee from August 14 to 20 that culminates in a blowout street bash.

Be sure to check out the Open Air Market for heaping helpings of food, festivities and family-friendly fun, as well as the Blackberry Wine and Cheese Party on August 18 for an evening of entertainment, prizes, demos and a silent auction.
