                      Bush Pilot Memorial Service Old Yellowknife


If there was ever a place in Canada to be named as the Bush Pilot capital then Yellowknife is the spot.  It is rugged bush country and is ideally suited for ski or float planes.  The country is not favourable to single-engine wheeled aircraft.  Numerous lakes dot the landscape and an engine failure up there means that you will be looking for bog or swamp at the end of lake, where hopefully, there is not a rock formation.  These early pilots had  tough job given their aircraft, weather information and lack of navigation aids. Those were tough lads indeed and I tip my hat to all of them.

With more than 24 hours of music, song, storytelling and dance on five stages, Folk on the Rocks is the must do summer event in Yellowknife.

Set in a natural amphitheatre on the sandy shores of Long Lake, the festival includes a childrens area, cultural area and a popular beer garden with the latest hot bands. Savor international and traditional cuisine at the food fair and view local and northern crafts at Art on the Rocks.
