PENTICTON - A&W sent an actor and crew to Penticton recently to film a commercial for its Facebook page.

The series of ads feature a float-thru rather than a drive thru on the Okanagan river channel through the Peach City.

There were no shortage of floaters ready for a free burger.

Too bad no one had a root beer float.


World’s first float thru. It had to happen. #awwwyeah Posted by A&W Canada on Monday, August 17, 2015
