KELOWNA - From good eats to boat shows and parades, there’s lots to do in Kelowna this weekend.

For the foodies, there is Okanagan Eats with its wide variety of locally grown, trendy and innovative food and drink. It’s at the Kelowna Curling Club at 551 Recreation Ave. on Friday from 2-10 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door but you can save $5 with a bag of food for the Central Okanagan Food Bank, which gets all the proceeds from the event.

If you want a quieter start to your day, before heading out for good eats, the Kelowna Garden Club is holding its annual plant sale Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Find out what the local gardeners are growing and what will enhance your own garden. It’s at the Guisachan Heritage Park, 1060 Cameron Ave.

For those who love all things boats, the 24th Annual Kelowna Boat Show will spend two days at Kelowna Yacht Club, 1370 Water St. It features boats from kayaks to speed boats, water toys like paddleboards and dozens of exhibitors. Boating B.C. will be there to encourage people to properly dispose of their old boats. It runs Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A fun filled and very colourful day is promised at the Vaishaki Parade that runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kelowna Sikh Temple, 1111 Rutland Road. It’s free.

Or, lovers of crafts can attend the Artisan Festival at the Kelowna Farmer’s Market, 1992 Dilworth Dr. on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Watch the artisans showcase their talents while enjoying music, giveaways and a scavenger hunt (see the staff at the red Market booth for information). This, too, is free.
