We know that many country fans from across the province and beyond have taken in the Boots and Hearts Country Music Festival at some time or another over the past five years.

We also know that our KICX 106 listeners were thrilled last year when the festival moved to our backyard – to Burl’s Creek Event Park in Oro-Medonte.

The 2015 festival was a resounding success, but if a citizen’s group called “Save Oro” had their way, it wouldn’t have happened at all.

And while they were not successful in putting the kaybosh on Boots and Hearts or the Wayhome Festivals last year, they have not given up on their goal.
That is why a group of concerned business people have decided to launch a campaign to encourage what they say are the silent majority, to come out in favour of Burl’s Creek and the improvements the new owners are trying to make.

Dave McKee is a co-owner of The Hitch House on Hwy 11 in Oro Medonte. He feels very strongly that Burl’s Creek has a significant roll to play in the township. Jack and Carey had a chance to speak with Dave on January 15th.

Here is what he had to say:
