A legendary Canadian band, Prism, performs in Sudbury this week as part of the Sudbury Poutine Fest, which runs Friday to Sunday.

Prism rose to fame and glory in the 1980s with such songs as Spaceship Superstar, Take Me to The Kaptin, and It’s Over, along with Take Me Away, Flying, You’re Like The Wind, Armageddon, Virginia, Night to Remember, Young and Restless, and Don’t Let Him Know.

The Juno-winning band takes the stage on Saturday at the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre.

Cory Marks of North Bay, who combines country music and hard rock, headlines Friday’s show.

The music is part of Sudbury Poutine Fest, which returns to Bell Park. Organizers of the 3rd annual Sudbury Poutine Fest, presented by Thornloe Cheese, say they are expecting more than 25,000 attendees across the three-day festival.

Food vendor space for this year’s festival has sold-out, leading to a much wider selection of poutine options that will far exceed previous years.

This year’s festival will also present arts, crafts, live music, a kids-zone and evening beer gardens (for patrons 19 and older after 8 p.m.).

Daily admission is $3 (or $5 per-pair of patrons) until 8 p.m., free for children 12 and younger.

Entry to the festival grounds for evening headliner concerts is $5 per person at the gates after 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday (19 and older), on a first-come, first-serve, capacity permitting.
