KELOWNA - With summer now in full swing, this weekend’s events will have you enjoying the bustling atmosphere.

Running through to Saturday is ‘a 1970’s Cinderalla’ by Bonnie Gratz at the New Vintage Theatre at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. There will two showtimes, a matinee and an evening show, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. respectively. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.

Nothing quite says summer like barbecues, and this class will teach you how to master the grill. Executive chef of Cedar Creek Winery, Jeremy Tucker, will teach you how to select the finest cuts, how to marinade and season, and of course, how to grill. You even get to sip on wine while watching and tasting. The $99 King of the Grill class runs from Friday to Sunday at Cedar Creek Winery, with times varying.

Grab your ball cap, and sit down with a beer and a hot-dog as the Kelowna Falcons take on the Wenatchee Applesox on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. Friday and Saturday’s games both start at 6:35, while Sunday’s game starts at 6:05. Tickets are only $12, with children and seniors only paying $7.

Saturday is all about the music.

Starting at 6 p.m. and going until 10 p.m. is Kelowna’a first, Rockin the Beach event, at the island stage at Waterfront Park. The rock tribute event includes sets by a Bruce Spingsteen tribute band, as well as a Tom Petty tribute band. During the concert, six musicians will perform four songs by their favorite classic rock artist. Plus, it’s all for a good cause, the classic rock event is raising money for the Kelowna SPCA. Attendees will also get 10 per cent of cab fare, just by showing their hand stamp. A shuttle ride to West Kelowna will be $10. Tickets are $35.

Not in the mood for rock? This weekend's Parks Alive! Outdoor Concert Series theme is feel good folk. Starting at 6:30 in Kerry Park, four bands will play until the sun goes down (the last set starts at 9:45 p.m.). The best part? The event is free of charge.

If you’re a fan of Blue Rodeo, you don’t want to miss Jim Cuddy performing at Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards, Saturday night. Starting at 6:45 p.m., the famous Canadian singer-songwriter will be performing an outdoor concert, amongst the mountains and vineyards. Tickets are $125 and selling out fast.

Need to sweat out some toxins on Sunday? The Okanagan’s largest outdoor yoga class is here for its tenth year. Get out your mat and join the practice from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at Stuart Park, downtown Kelowna. The event is by donation, with all funds going towards Mats for Metta.

Celebrate Kettle River Brewing Company’s first anniversary on Sunday. From noon until 8 p.m., the brewery will be pouring their one-year barrel-aged blonde. With heavy white oak flavor, and vanilla and floral notes, this beer is perfect for sipping on a hot summer’s day. CrAsian food truck will also be there to hand out delicious food. There’s no charge, all you have to do is show up and celebrate.
