Fat cat parade fills streets
Despite the majority of respondents to Castanet's poll saying they would not be attending the Fat Cat children's festival, a large crowd turned out on Cawston street Saturday morning to take in the parade.
The annual festival began Friday and may have seen lower numbers due to the teacher strike.
That did not seem to be the case on Saturday, however, as residents filled the street with children, strollers and dogs.
The parade began on Richter street and turned onto Cawston for the main procession.
Floats included the Spirit of Kelowna and the parade was led by a bagpipe band.
The parade runs from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the festival continues in Waterfront Park from 11a.m. to 5p.m.
