From May 31 to June 3, country music lovers congregated at the Draveurs Leisure Centre in Fort Coulonge for the third annual Country Music Festival, featuring nearly 30 artists and bands performing in both English and French.
Organized by local musician Phil Denault and his wife Carole Faubert, the event brought in several hundred music junkies from all over Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick, many of them in R.V.s and campers.
“We want people to come into the area, to come and see the chutes, our towns, come and see how beautiful it is up in the Pontiac,” Denault said. “That's why we made this, to bring people to our area. We're huge country music lovers, both of us.”
