Overlander Days to showcase North Shore

Last year the first annual Overlander Days offered lots of activities for the kids but this year will offer even more fun.

KAMLOOPS - This weekend McDonald Park will play host to a celebration honouring everything that makes the North Shore special, from the people and parks to the businesses and services.

Business improvement association executive director Steven Puhallo says this year Overlander Days will once again feature the Tastes of the North Shore but will include several new additions with proceeds from food sales going towards the Meals On Wheels program.

Several new attractions will also be set up for kids, including a dunk tank — proceeds to People in Motion, henna art and local firefighters with a firetruck. There'll also be face painting, free access to the pool and splash pad, games, inflatable bouncers, princesses and super heroes.

A special seniors area will once again be set up. Live entertainment featuring local performers and demonstrations — including martial arts, yoga and fitness — is scheduled with Paisley Groove headlining in the afternoon. Information booths and businesses will also be on hand and for those cycling to the park, a bicycle valet will be available.

The event takes place Saturday, Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at McDonald Park.

Currently Environment Canada is calling for cloudy with a chance of rain and a high of 25 Celsius on Saturday.
