Peachland set for Canada Day

Peachland is the place to be for Canada Day with events and activities happening all day!

The morning starts with the Canada Day Beach run which draws hundreds of racers to participate in a 5K or 10K walk or run.  The 10K portion of this run is part of the Interior Road Race series.  The route features a family (and novice) friendly race course along the shores of Okanagan Lake.  Great for first time racers.

The Emmanuel Church will be providing a pancake breakfast at the Community Centre and the Peachland Rotary, Lions and Legion will be hosting BBQ’s throughout the day.

There are some great entertainers this year as well as some exciting old fashioned games.  Challenge yourself to a three-legged race for potato sack race!  Par T Perfect will also be on hand with their bouncy castles and face painting. Other entertainment includes Dance City Academy, City Lites, and Shakewood Annie.

Entertainment runs concurrently with some other great events in Heritage Park including the Farmers/Crafters Market, children’s games and contests at Swim Bay, the Canada Day cake cutting and so much more.

The parade is set to start at 5 p.m. with the fireworks capping off the day at 10:30 pm.  For a full schedule of Canada Day happenings visit their website or call 250-767-2133.  We hope you will join us for a “Made in Peachland Canada Day!”
