KELOWNA - The clocks are primed to spring ahead this weekend and we're all set to lose an hour of sleep. While Daylight Savings can be stressful, Kelowna is filled with enough events this weekend to entertain anyone.

Saturday, March 8 is International Women's Day, so make sure to show the ladies in your life how you appreciate them. Also check out a bunch of Women's Day events at UBC Okanagan, including a poster session at noon.

OUTWeek 2019 is drawing to a close at the UBC Okanagan and they're sending it out with a bang. The Well student pub will be hosting naughty bingo starting at 7 p.m. on March 8. The sex-positive event asks for $10 donations from non-students.
