Crowds of people attended Wakestock in Bala for this year’s Water Sports and Music Festival. After a 13-year hiatus from Muskoka, many people were excited about the festival’s big return. We spoke with Bryan Gardner, Founding Technical Director and On-Site Host who shares his reaction to this past weekend’s events.

Athletes competed from around the world including some from our very own backyard. So who deserves an honorable mention?

With this year’s Wakestock now over, people are wondering if it’s going to stay in Bala for good.
