There are free flights for kids 8 to 17 and children 12 and under get in free if you use the coupon on the Wings and Wheels website.
Adults pay $10 to get in while a family pay $25. All the money raised will go to support community and international projects.

The Okanagan Science Centre is honouring fathers, grandfathers and male mentors.

It's free for fathers, grandfathers and male mentors accompanied by at least one paying child, but only one free male adult per child. Rules are rules.
