Okanagan residents and tourists alike have lots to look forward to this summer, starting with two fabulous national days celebrating Canada.
Canada Day - Fete du Canada
On July 1, 1867, Canada became a new federation with its own constitution. Originally called Dominion Day, the July 1 holiday was officially renamed Canada Day in 1982. Canadians across the country will be out in droves to show their true colours in support of Canada’s 149 th birthday. In the North Okanagan Vernon volunteers are working on significant updates to the celebration in Polson Park. The cancellation of the firework display was a disappointment to many last year. Coming soon on 107.5 on KISS FM and the Vernon Morning Star, however, will be an announcement about this year’s display.
Armstrong plans an early start. On June 19, Countdown to Canada Day begins ten days of special events including scavenger hunts, music in the park, flat track racing at O’Keefe Ranch and a bike rodeo. Countdown
