Facebook comment: In defense of Kelowna’s Canada Day

There was a lot of entertainment around, lots of live bands which were amazing

Comment from the Kelowna Capital News Facebook page, re: Letter to the editor July 5, 2017. No fireworks, no beer, no entertainment

OK, so there wasn’t a beer garden, I’m fine with that because it is a family event. But there was a lot of entertainment around. Lots of live bands which were amazing. A bit too loud at the TD stage but still fantastic entertainment. I heard and loved Cod Gone Wild, Watoto Children’s Choir, Kenny Wayne “Blues Boss” with Sermon Doucette, and the Yamabiko Taiko all at the TD stage. I didn’t get a chance to go into Prospera Place this year but they always have a lot of great entertainment there as well. The letter sounds to me they only stayed in one place for a short time or they would have seen all the booths and shows and food and people having a lot of fun.
