Rutland May Days!

May 17th - 20th, Rutland Park Society will host their 53rd annual May Days. It seems to be getting bigger every year.

So let's jump in and tell you some of the details so you can bring your whole family to one of the events.

One of the signature events is the Parade, which will happen on Saturday, May 19th.

Here is a map of the route and schedule for the parade.

Westcoast amusements will also be set up for the duration of the event. I recently met local Photographer Scott Dueck and he was kind enough to share some of his pictures taken at West Coast Amusements last year.

There are three days of entertainment that has been coordinated by long time May Days advocate and coordinator Mary- Ann Graham.

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.

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.
