Accelerate Okanagan are once again hosting their annual New Year Kick Off Party at the Laurel Packinghouse on Jan 11th. For those who haven't noticed we have a growing tech community in Kelowna. Its safe to say it started with Club Penguin (http://www.castanet.net/news/What-s-On/81304/The-story-of-Club-Penguin-Tonight ) but through some significant government support, and a gathering of digital creatives we have a small but strong tech community.
Last year they founded a new event to celebrate everything tech and digital. Well actually that might be a stretch. From the video below it more looked like they wanted to throw a great party.
Last year over 300 community members enjoyed an evening of great local food, drink and entertainment.
