VANCOUVER - A Kamloops man has won the big prize at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancounver; a brand new home in the South Okanagan.

The prize includes the 3,200 square ft. home in Naramata just north of Penticton, a barbecue, hot tub and furnishings.

Lottery organizers are calling other winners today.
