Last weekend of August: in your words

We have compiled a community photo album of how you spent your weekend in Kelowna

This weekend was a weather roller coaster. We saw some of the smoke dissipate, finally got a taste of the crisp Okanagan air and then we ended the weekend with a rainy night. But Kelowna still knew how to make the most out of those clear skies.

Kelowna’s second annual Comic Con beamed down Star Trek:The Next Generation’s Denise Crosby, who played Security Chief Tasha Yar, along with the Walking Dead’s Vincent Ward, and Andy Poon, a concept artist from CW’s Arrow, Flash & DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Artists from across North America showed off their colourful comic books during the event Saturday and Sunday at the Kelowna Curling Club.
