Boogie on White Rock beach

Waterfront event encourages a ‘vote for the coast’

A concert to encourage people to ‘#VoteForTheCoast’ is set for Wednesday evening at White Rock’s Memorial Park.

According to a news release issued Tuesday by The Wilderness Committee, Boogie on the Beach is a free event featuring folk musician Luke Wallace.

The concert is one of five being held “across the Salish Sea” in an effort to stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline and prevent an oil spill on the coast, the release states.

The White Rock concert, set for 5:30-7:30 p.m., is the first in the lineup, which runs through May 7.

The park is located in the 14900-block of Marine Drive, just east of the White Rock Museum &Archives and west of the pier. Those planning to attend Wednesday are encouraged to bring a blanket and picnic.
