Prince Charles and Camilla to take in concert at Province House, fireworks on Charlottetown Harbour

Prince Edward Islanders and visitors — including royal ones — are invited to a free outdoor concert on Victoria Day Monday.

Their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are arriving in Charlottetown Monday evening as part of the couple's royal tour of Canada. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will make their way to Province House by about 8:30 p.m., where the free Victoria Day concert will already be in full swing.

Performers for the show are Tim Chaisson, Catherine MacLellan, Patrick Ledwell, Wade Lynch, Paper Lions and The Meds.

“All eyes will be on Prince Edward Island as Their Royal Highnesses arrive in Charlottetown,” said Premier Robert Ghiz in a news release announcing the acts. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for Islanders to come together, enjoy an evening of Island talent and welcome our special guests during this celebratory year.”

Entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. on the grounds at Province House. There will be face-painting, balloon twisting and other family activities.

As the night draws to a close, a fireworks display will light up the sky over the Charlottetown Harbour at about 9 p.m.

    So are we trying to glass over the tasteless Queen impersonation with this focus on others, ---- Guardian is, if nothing else, slick. I agree, there should be some music with a bit of cultural superiority, e.g. mentioned by an other writer--- but don't hold your breath, - only a small number would show up, and the organizer of this folly need to have creaming herds to claim success.

    Why are the organizers not choosing music closer to their Royal Highness' demographic and showcase the wonderful classical musical talent we have on the Island? Surely having a concert with the Confederation Centre choirs, Sung Ha Shin-Bouey, the Singing Strings would be more appropriate? Also the Wade Lynch thing is in poor taste - do the organizers want us to look like rubes and hicks? I think so.

    I thought fireworks were illegal in Prince Edward Island! Enforce a law on the people and then turn around and break that same law with no worries of incarceration or fines. What a bunch of backwards BS. Oh, that's right. It's just illegal for all the average Joe. Anything the government wants to do is ok no matter what they are up to. What a waste of time and taxpayer money.

      There's no law being broken. Fireworks in your backyard is a wee bit different than firworks shot over the harbour by a professional organization. I trust you understand the difference, or what's next, will you be complaining about the inequalities about the city police being allowed to carry a gun but the average Joe cannot?
