Summer Street Social!

The Summer Street Social happens this Saturday evening from 4-10:30pm downtown in Kerry Park.

Summer Street Social is an enhanced Parks Alive! event. It's totally free and on top of Parks Alive's! regular onstage entertainment; it will feature many family activities.

Those activities include bouncy castle, climbing wall, circus yogo (presented by Okanagan4kids.com), park and play (presented by City of the Kelowna), limbo dancing (by ISCO) and many other interactive activities to get you and your kids moving. 

Many of Festivals Kelowna's buskers will also be in the area balancing rocks, juggling, and various other fun displays of creativity.

Band Schedule:

4:30pm Moni Funk and the Groove Machine (Funk/ Dance)

6:00pm Sista B and the Boyz


8:30pm Mazacote (Salsa band from Vancouver)

Prior to Mazacote hitting the stage Latinesque will be teaching the crowd how to Salsa.

I had a chance to connect with Renata Mills from Festivals Kelowna to talk about the event and how it came together:

I love creating and connecting. For years I spent most of my time in Kelowna creating songs, and those songs have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, etc..

I use this column to connect some of our local creatives, events, unique local projects/non-profits, and occasionally a random column about our city. 

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014 I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
