Looking for a way to wind down the week or kick off the weekend? How about spending the evening outside, in an amphitheatre park setting, listing to music while taking in the captivating views of Lake Okanagan and the surrounding mountains.
This is possible each Friday night during July and August in West Kelowna’s Memorial Park when the weekly free community concert series, Music in the Park takes place. Bring your family and friends, a blanket or a lawn chair and listen to the sounds of local artists while watching the sun cast its final rays of sun on the mountains across the lake.
Feel free to bring a picnic supper along, or enjoy the cuisine from the food trucks on site. If you have young children with you, the Parks & Recreation staff from the City of West Kelowna are set up with fun recreational activities that the kids can enjoy.
Here is the weekly schedule:
July 08 – Michael Painchaud – country singer/song-writer and Ben Klick – country
