KELOWNA - April starts off strong this weekend with a bevy of interesting things to do throughout Kelowna, whether you want to explore the great outdoors, meet new people, or just stay inside and enjoy some free time.

Freelance work can be immensely satisfying, but it's lonely working by yourself. Kelowna freelancers and solo-entrepreneurs are encouraged to come to Freelancers Friday at the Okanagan coLab on 1405 St. Paul Street on April 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This collaborative event allows freelancers to meet, swap stories, and share advice. Register for this free event here.

Travel back in time to hear the hits of yesterday at the OK Corral Cabaret's Flashback Friday on April 5. The best country, rock, and dance music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s will be playing all night long. The festivities start at 8 p.m. The Cabaret will also be celebrating the launch of its new patio

Lara St. John will be electrifying people with her virtuoso violin skills at a Kelowna Community Theatre concert on April 5. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased here.

Get your hands dirty at Divine Inspired Gifts and Gallery on April 6 as part of their terrarium workshop. Learn how to make a perfect plant display that will dazzle your houseguests. Tickets are $65 and the event starts at 1 p.m.

Spring is in the air and that means hiking trails are going to be popular spots. Why not help keep one of the trails, Knox Mountain, clean? A group will be clearing the trail surface of debris on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and they're looking for volunteers. Check out more details here.

Life moves pretty fast. Why not slow down and enjoy things? That's the idea behind Slow Art Day, an international event that's coming to the Kelowna Art Gallery on April 6. A tour of the gallery will let attendees appreciate the power of taking your time to enjoy art. The event runs from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

If you've got a strong stomach for shock comedy, head to Dakoda's Sports Bar and Grill on April 6 for the Sick and Twisted stand-up show. Comedians will cross every line in an attempt to be crowned the most shocking performer of the night. No topic is off limits. There will be no cameras or recordings. Viewer discretion is advised, obviously. The vulgarities begin at 9 p.m. and tickets are $10 at the door.

Montreal's Great Russian Ballet is bringing its renowned performers to Kelowna on April 7 for two performances of Giselle, a show first created in 1884. There will be shows at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Get your tickets here.
