Several events being held this Sunday will aim to get West Kelowna residents in the holiday spirit.

The District of West Kelowna is starting the party with Winterfest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Mount Boucherie Community Centre.

The annual celebration will feature hot dogs from Save On Foods, coffee, hot chocolate and Timbits from Tim Horton's, free public skating, face painting, crafts and an appearance by Santa.

Following the Winterfest activities, the district will host a Christmas Light Up at Mount Boucherie Community Centre from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

Holiday lights will be turned on at dusk in the courtyard in front of Royal LePage Place. Those attending the light up will be invited to sing Christmas carols and have cupcakes in celebration of the district's fifth birthday.

Those seeking a more grown-up event are invited to check out Holiday Traditions along the Westside Wine Trail.

The passport event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at participating wineries along the wine trail, including: Beaumont Family Estate Winery, Kalala Organic Estate Winery, Little Straw Vineyards, Meadow Vista Honey Wines, Mission Hill Family Estate, Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery, Quails' Gate Estate Winery, Rollingdale Winery and Volcanic Hills Estate Winery.

The event will feature music, holiday treats, wine tastings and gift packages. Those who visit five or more wineries will be entered into a draw for a Westside Wine Trail sampler prize.

Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or donation for the Westside Community Foodbank.
