It’s the final weekend of the Coal Shed Music Festival on Water Street in Yarmouth.

The organizer of the festival says he’s received a lot of positive feedback over the last two weekends on the waterfront.

Phil DeMille says it’s probably been the best festival yet.

“We’ve had great crowds and great entertainment. The whole thing has flowed along quite smoothly with no hitches. We’ve had great comments from not only locals, but tourists as well,” says DeMille.

The music begins this afternoon with Arden Gaudet, Hannah Saulnier, Mischief Makers and the Angry Flute, Kevin Kopp and Manitoba Hal.

Tonight, John Snyder, Trilogy, DNR and Darren Arsenault take the stage.

Entertainment continues all weekend long, with opportunities to donate to local school breakfast programs.
