Help support local Canada Day festival

Festivals Kelowna is looking for volunteers to help stage the city’s annual Canada Day festivities.

“Our Kelowna Canada Day festival is one of the largest in the province and features attractions and activities for all ages,” said Renata Mills, executive director with Festivals Kelowna, the group  that  has organized the Canada Day festival for the past five years

“As a result, you can just imagine the planning and people power that goes into pulling it all together. If you have a few hours to spare on Canada Day and want to help out, we are requesting people sign up for a four-hour shift and the earlier you contact us, the better your chance to pick from a preferred task.”

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to email Dana Wrigley, the Canada Day volunteer coordinator, at
