PENTICTON - B.C. Family Day Party at Gyro Park on Sunday was the centre of attraction for downtown tourists and residents.

Dozens of families experienced a relaxed atmosphere with live musicians, vendors and plenty of activities for children.

When the kids weren't getting their muscles burning jumping up and down or climbing a climbing wall, they were getting their hands dirty or colourful with wacky arts and crafts.
