KELOWNA – The rainy forecast this weekend is going to put a damper on two big events happening in Kelowna this weekend.

The Knox Mountain Hill Climb takes place May 21 and May 22 at Knox Mountain Park. Gates open at 9 a.m. and for $15 per day or $20 for the weekend spectators can see dozens of high performance cars try to get to the top of the hill as quickly as possible.

Children under 12 are free and spectators are asked not to wear anything coloured red. There will be food vendors, beer gardens, toilets, children’s activities and a car show as well.

Rutlands biggest carnival is also happening this weekend. Rutland May Days starts today, May 20 and goes until May 22.

Sponsored by Shooting Star Amusements, May Days is a weekend of rides, games and junk food starting at 10 a.m. in Rutland Centennial Park.

A $2 admission charge at the gate goes directly to the Rutland May Days Society and will help pay for the restoration of Centenial Hall.

There is a 60 per cent chance of showers on both Saturday and Sunday with highs of 18C and lows of 11C.
