By showtime, 6:30 p.m. on Saturday night, May 18, it was clear that lots of Cowichan Lake folks were happy to enjoy a local talent show at the 50+ Centre.

Extra seats had been added at the side to accommodate the big crowd that came out to hear the Good Time Band, the Cowichan Lake Tenors, and many individual performers.

The doors were open as it was a fresh, sunny evening and the atmosphere was such as to encourage hopes that another talent show can be held during Heritage Days next year.
