Next week's weather has the potential to be frosty as well with lows of -12 C for Monday, -11 C for Tuesday and -12, again, for Wednesday.

On Friday the Penticton Vees go up against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at 7 p.m. at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Tickets are $13 for adults while cheaper rates are available for students, children and seniors.

On Saturday Del Barber will bring his folk artist and singing talent to The Dream Cafe on Front Street. The songwriter has two Western Canada Music Awards to his name thanks to his warm and timeless stories inspired by his upbringing on the Canadian prairies.

The Summerland Arts Council will have an abstract art exhibit on Saturday, featuring works in acrylic by artist Fiona Neal. The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow at the Summerland Art Gallery and Gift Shop.

Bets will be won or lost on Sunday as Super Bowl XLVIII (48th), featuring the Seattle Seahawks versus the Denver Broncos gets underway. The Barking Parrot will have a football viewing party, sponsored by the Reds Hockey Club, waiting for ticket buyers. Prices are $15 and the Parrot is located at the Penticton Lakeside Resort and Casino.
