PENTICTON - Canada's Snowbirds flipped, rolled and amazed the huge crowd along Okanagan Park beach Wednesday evening.

The nine CT-114 Tutor aircraft flew in formation, out of formation, split apart and flew at each other only to peel away at the last moment.

For those who didn't attend the beach it was easy to see the Snowbirds as they roared fast and low over the tallest buildings in the city.

The demonstration was also the headlining act for the first day of the Penticton Peach Festival which lasts from Thursday to Sunday.
