Luvassa riemukkaat rantajatsit

"Huippujatsia kyläjuhlan tunnelmissa. Menemme asiaan yläkautta, mutta yleisöystävällisesti. On vaikeampaa ja helpompaa tarjontaa, mutta se on aina mietittyä ja rakkaudella tehtyä" - Festivaalijohtaja Charles Gil luonnehtii Raahen Rantajatseja Sari Jaatisen haastattelussa (Raahelainen 21.03.)
