KELOWNA – No one will ever love you as much as your mom, so here is a list of events in Kelowna to say thanks and show her how special she is.

This Sunday and Monday mothers will be celebrated at the Kelowna FabFive wineries with something special at each of the five local wineries. House of Rose, Camelot, Vibrant Vine, The View and SpierHead will each have special promotions so bring your mom or come by yourself and be spoiled starting at 1 p.m. 

Glenmore Elementary School is hosting their third annual Spring Fair this Mother's Day weekend. You and your mom can find all manner of treats and an unbeatable selection of beautiful handcrafted gifts.

If mom is a fan of Canada’s favourite beverage, Waterfront Park will be host to more than 30 breweries pouring beers from across North America and the World. The Great Okanagan Beer Fest is a three day festival, offering patrons a mix of exclusive cask events, beer and brewing seminars, and a beer sampling main event pouring for an estimated 2,500 beer drinkers on Saturday, May 9th 2015. 

On Sunday the Lake Country Museum and Patio Café is offering guided tours of the Museum and Wentworth Cabin, as well as scavenger hunts for kids and old fashioned candy at the store. On Mother’s Day, the Museum will also be offering an old fashioned photo booth for families — dress up in one of their historic costumes and have your digital photo taken with a backdrop of a museum exhibit such as the Player Piano, a 1900 Travelling Trunk or the Wentworth Cabin. 

Tours of the museum run from noon until 4 p.m. and the Patio Café will be open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.  

Davison Orchards are hosting a Mother's Day Family Picnic in the orchard. Treat mom to a picnic in the orchard and create lasting memories for the whole family. Lunch is available for pick up between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and includes old-fashioned cold baked chicken, a gourmet potato salad, veggies and dip, freshly baked buns, ice-cold lemonade, and a delicious dessert. Just bring your picnic blanket and they look after the rest. 

The Little Rascals Pony Parties and Petting Zoo on Joe Rich Road is offering free admission for moms Sunday. Open from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., families are invited for some wholesome family fun with lots of animals and pony rides. 

On Saturday, a hilarious one-woman show at the Rotary Centre for the Arts will take you through every mom’s experience of good times, bad advice, and trying to do it all. From hot dates to play dates, experience the rollicking rollercoaster of motherhood. Because no matter how you planned it, it always comes suddenly. Suddenly Mommy is a laugh-out-loud night out for anyone who is a mom, or who has one.
