KELOWNA - Walk the Beach is again organizing a protest march asking for unfettered high-water beach access on Okanagan Lake.

The group held its inaugural march last August, attracting a couple of hundred participants.

Organizer Al Janusas has vowed to make beach access on Okanagan Lake a political issue during this fall's municipal election.

Docks Shame or Fame — a Facebook group that posts pictures of docks and other structures on Kelowna's lakeshore they believe violate the high water mark — posted this picture in advance of the protest.

“Now this is a whole new of rudeness,” the page administrator said.

The second annual Walk the Beach protest is scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26 from Kelowna’s City Park.
