CENTRAL OKANAGAN - It’s Family Day in British Columbia this weekend, time to get together with whoever makes up your particular clan and celebrate.

Family-friendly events will be taking place all over the province. Here are some for families from the Central Okanagan.

Parkinson Recration Centre is hosting Family Day where you and the crew can enjoy free access to the aquatic and fitness areas from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8. There’s a bouncy castle for the little ones and extra games and activities set up in the pool and gym for the older kids.

West Kelowna families can enjoy Family Day at two area schools. Mount Boucherie secondary and Mar Jok elementary will both offer a variety of activities from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and again from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Capital News Centre is also opening its facilities up for Family Day on Monday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Free ice skating and family soccer will be available.

If your family is into food, there’s still a few tickets left for the Canadian Culinary Championships, a weekend-long celebration of all that is food (and wine). Gold medal chefs from high-end restaurants across Canada, winners of their regional competitions, will compete in the grand finale to determine the 2016 Gold Medal Plates Champion.

This weekend marks the last two days of Dine Around Thompson Okanagan. Sip and savour your way through the participating restaurants in downtown Kelowna.
