On Sunday September 20th I will be performing at the RDCO’s Kokanee Salmon Festival at Mission Creek Park. I will be there from 1:00-3:00 PM performing Mingling Magic.

You have two opportunities this weekend to celebrate the return of the Kokanee salmon to area creeks!

Bring the whole family out and take part in the free Kokanee Salmon Festivals in Mission Creek and Hardy Falls Regional Parks on Sunday, September 20th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan and City of Kelowna are teaming up for the event in Mission Creek Regional Park, Springfield and Durnin Roads. There will be interpretive programs where you can see and learn more about the land-locked Kokanee salmon in and around the spawning channel. There will be ‘fishy’ displays and activities for you to participate in or you can sit back and enjoy the musical entertainment throughout the day. New this year is the Salmon Story Telling Tent, a large, inflatable, interactive tent where you can hear native legends narrated about the salmon.

At Hardy Falls Regional Park (Hardy Road off Highway 97 south in Peachland) join the Regional District, Roger W. Cyr and Associates and the Peachland Sportsmens Association for the Kokanee Salmon Festival. Interpretive tours will be available as the salmon return to Peachland (Deep) Creek to spawn. You’ll also find ‘fishy’ activities for the family, a colouring contest and a BBQ by donation or contribution of a non-perishable food item for the Peachland Food Bank.

Don’t miss these fun-filled, fish focused events!
