TD Concerts at the Pier series concluded Saturday night at White Rock's waterfront.

TD Concerts at the Pier series judged a success

Positive reaction to waterfront concerts means they'll likely be back next summer

Indications are good for a return of the TD Concerts at the Pier next year, according to White Rock BIA executive director Douglas Smith.

In an email to Peace Arch News Monday, Smith cited positive response and a growing audience during the five-week series of free Saturday night concerts, which concluded Saturday, Aug. 8 with a performance by The Matinee, Tonye Aganaba and Blue Moon Marquee.

“From all indications, the BIA, the City and our major sponsors want to continue supporting the series next year,” Smith said, noting the quality of emerging indie talent spotlighted by the event.

The series drew patrons from all over the region, including Washington State, he said.

“Many of the visitors had dinner at our local restaurants, and that was what we envisioned,” he said.

“Going forward, it would be amazing if the City of White Rock could eventually build an amphitheatre near the pier that could be used for the concert series and other major events.”
