Ready to try something new?

Each week there are countless events going on in our community. Often it's tough for events to rise amongst the noise.

For this week's post I wanted to search for some events you could go to knowing that if you go it will be the most unique experience of your month.

Get out there and expand your horizons. Try something new this month.

Ready for some comedy?
Ready to be the comedian?

Local Comic Rob Balsdon has been finding ways to support local comics for years in Kelowna. He recently posted this on facebook: “Sunday night comedy is back and it all starts this Sunday Night, 9pm @ Freddy's Brew Pub! Its open mic comedy every week. If you want to perform and have never done it before this is THE PLACE TO TRY IT OUT!.. see you Sunday”.

I'm not sure about you, but I'm tempted.

I love creating songs, which 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, and others.
