Country Thunder Saskatchewan in the Craven Valley is about to begin.
A ritual starts Tuesday today for thousands of people who will be camping at the Craven site. It’s the move-in.
Kim Blevins is the general manager for Country Thunder Music Festivals. She says pack some patience if you’re moving in today and don’t forget your wristband and camping passes.
“There will be some heavy traffic for a bit,” Blevins said. “It gets heavier on Wednesday and Thursday. So, if you can come in Tuesday and drop off your camper or trailer, please come out. The traffic will be flowing quickly, so you can drop off your camper and go back to the city or stay on the site.”
Blevins admits Tuesday will also be busy with people moving into the site with their trailers – but she says the traffic only progressively gets worse heading into the site.
She says people can help expedite things by being ready before entering the campgrounds.
“We’re telling people if you ordered your tickets early and in advance, you should have those wrist-bands and camping passes in your possession,” Blevins said. “So if you are coming out to the site Tuesday to drop off your camper, please ensure you have your wrist-bands on.”
Blevins says put the camping passes in your window and that should make it easier to get onto the site.
She says the beer gardens open Wednesday with some local performers ready to warm things up in the beer garden.
“We’re show-ready for Wednesday,” Blevins said. “The beer gardens open Wednesday and the show starts on Thursday.”
