Lighting up Kelowna

Downtown Kelowna's Light Up! happens this Saturday. The line up of activities is truly boggling. I don't know of any other events in Kelowna that collaborate with more stakeholders to create something truly memorable for our community. The number of options I'm going to present you are going to be impossible for you to digest so lets start by suggesting that you download the schedule that they have created.
Click here to download the schedule of activities so you can email it to yourself, print it off or sit down and make a plan about what you and your family want to experience this Saturday.
There is truly something for everyone.
Below is the full list of activities but for those who are more visual I've created a google map with all of the locations and activities.
