The day ended at 10.30pm and was as always incident free thanks to the efforts of the East Hants District Council staff, who lead on the event, contractors, local police and volunteers. As well as the music there were free activities all day along with advice and information from the relevant organisations.

 A band called ‘Funeral For a Friend’ was the headline act and the highlight of the day. After the last of the music the Park centre car park became a giant one way system to allow all the lifts to arrive, pick up and head home.
