The Snowbirds demonstrations squadron, an icon of the Canadian Armed Forces, were in Kelowna on Monday afternoon to give a 30-minute aerial show over Okanagan Lake.

The Snowbirds were brought here by the Kelowna Rotary Club, as the pilots were guests of honour at a fundraiser banquet held Sunday at the Coast Capri Hotel.
