PENTICTON - A Penticton adventure park will dedicate its final day of operation for the season to celebrate the life of James Christian McIntosh.

On Sunday, Sept. 27, LocoLanding will be donating 100 per cent of the proceeds of their final day of the season to the McIntosh family.

“When something as tragic as the loss of a child happens, I truly believe everyone in Penticton would give whatever they could for this family. We are just fortunate to be able to provide LocoLanding as a venue for fundraising,” LocoLanding owner Diana Stirling says, adding her staff were also donating their time to the cause.

James McIntosh, 5, was killed last Tuesday, Sept. 15 while crossing the highway at the intersection of Fairview Road and Highway 97.

LocoLanding, located at 75 Riverside Drive, will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Sunday. The entire community is invited to come out in support of the McIntosh family.

A GoFundMe page has also been set up for the McIntosh family. The page has raised $6,590 through109 donations in three days.
