Here are a few of our hottest stories on this very cold day.


Communities throughout the Central Okanagan celebrated the holiday season with light-up events over the weekend. Check out the video above.


Oh, what a beautiful morning. The stars were bright this a.m, and if you’re a sailor that might mean something. If not, here’s some more relevant information we’ve rounded up for you, so you know what’s what when the water cooler talk gets going.

1.) The national weather agency said today Kelowna will be mainly sunny, with increasing cloudiness in the afternoon.  All that sun comes at a cost, of course. It’s cold and the high will be 0 C. Learn more about your weather by clicking … here.

2.) The city’s expansion of a bylaw aimed at stopping people from sleeping on sidewalks has some community members riled up and they are going to sit down in front of Kelowna City Hall today to express their displeasure. Read more about it in this Alistair Waters story.

3.) Go to any great restaurants this weekend? One Okanagan restaurant has made a Top 100 list. Guess before you click,  and then tell us what you think.

4.) The Alberta Premier is heading to B.C.  to make the case for Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. How are you feeling about all the pipeline news this week?

5.) If you didn’t know it already, Christmas is on its way and every town in the Okanagan has had their annual light-up. We went to a few of them, and there are photos on our Facebook page, but check out this stunner from Big White. If you have any festive light-up pics you’d like to share, send them to edit@kelownacapnews.com
