PENTICTON - Weather for the first day of Peachfest may not have been ideal, but that didn’t stop thousands from showing up along the Okanagan Lake shoreline to watch the Royal Canadian Snowbirds perform their magic.
The forecast for today, Aug. 6, calls for clearing skies this afternoon, just in time for day two activities.
The West Coast Lumberjack Show will make three appearances in Okanagan Lake Park, at 12:50 p.m., 2:50 p.m. and 6:05 p.m. The show provides an entertaining blend of humour and lumbering skills, suitable for all ages.
A full slate of music and entertainment is scheduled for Okanagan Lake Park this afternoon, with musical acts beginning at 1:25 p.m., when About Time hits the stage with popular music.
Rumble 100 (top-40 music) take the stage at 1:55 p.m., followed by the Black Widow Rope Spinners, who perform at 2:30 p.m. and 5:45 p.m.
Two dance performances are slated for 4:45 p.m., Mazur Polish Dancers, and 7:15 p.m., Boundless Belly Dancers.
Rounding out the musical performances are:
- Aidan Mayes Mandy Cole (popular music) at 5:05 p.m.
- Flashback at 6:40 p.m.
- Nikita Afonso (country-popular music) at 7:35 p.m.
- Cosmic Brew (rock music) at 8:20 p.m.
Today’s main act is 54-40, starting at 9:30 p.m. The Reel Peach Festival, with short film clips of all things Okanagan, begins at 9:15 p.m., just before tonight’s headline act.
