The fourth annual Triport Music Festival brought a world of sound to the North Island Saturday.

Port Hardy’s summer music festival was held at the Old Lukwa Mill Site in the town, a change from its previous location at Cluxewe Resort.

A number of vendors came out to join the event, including Beating Hearts Desserts, who offered their “Better than Krispy Kreme” glazed donuts. Other vendors offered souvlaki and burgers, kettle corn, and glitter tattoos.

The festival drew local performers, as well as acts from Vancouver, Victoria, and Courtenay, featuring sounds that ranged from jazz to world fusion to classic R&B. It closed with a set by Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band Willy and the Poor Boys.
