Council approves $25,000 for Nelson mural festival

Nelson city council has committed $25,000 towards next year’s mural festival.

Arts council executive director Sydney Black says the event is set for Aug. 17, 18, and 19.

It’s based on a similar festival in Vancouver.

Black says they hope to create ten murals on buildings in the alleys parallel to Baker Street.
