Creston RCMP responded to 98 calls from May 17-23, Staff Sgt. Gord Steward said on Tuesday. Few of those calls, however, resulted from Blossom Festival activities or the annual Kootenanny music festival, held this year on private property near Kootenay Lake.

“The number of calls is typical for this time of year,” he said. “But I’ve always been impressed with the behavior of people who attend festival events. This year was no exception.”
