KELOWNA – It was the third year for the Keloha Music and Arts Festival in Kelowna with the hot weather and hot acts.

The festival on the shores of Okanagan Lake provided music fans plenty of chances to cool off in the water.

The three day event is produced by Wet Ape Productions and included two stages, art installations, exhibitor booths, food vendors and, of course, beer gardens.

While the crowd counts aren’t in yet, organizers were expecting over 12,000 for this year’s Keloha.
