Westside Daze: Fire and magic on Friday

Westside Daze festival in West Kelowna will be full of fire and magic Friday

By Brenda Giesbrecht

Wonderment, awe, amazement – those are the elements that fire and magic bring into our lives. This year, be prepared for all that and more as Westside Daze brings two fabulous performances to Memorial Park in West Kelowna.

The weekend starts Friday night with Leif David’s Magic Show.

David has been entertaining audiences in the Southern Interior for many years with his high-energy, fun-filled magic. You might be one of the lucky people invited up onto the stage, to have David make magic happen right in the palm of your hand.

This is a family-friendly show with clean comedy, music, lots of audience participation and wonderful magic.

Be prepared to stay up late on Saturday night so you can be mesmerized by the Kinshira Fire Troupe. Well known in the area, Kinshira will create a magic of their own with a choreographed show of music and spinning fire. The troupe members use a variety of techniques and materials; some come with martial arts training and others with a background in dance. Whatever their unique talents, the troupe will impress you with their passion and artistry.
