KELOWNA - Hard as it may be to believe, it's time to bid farewell to March for another year. Send the month off in style this weekend with a bevy of cool events in Kelowna.

Flex your trivia muscles for a good cause at the Laurel Packinghouse on March 29. The B.C. SPCA is hosting the second annual Smarty Paws Meow-it-all trivia night. All proceeds raised at the event will support abused, neglected, and abandoned animals with the SPCA. Tickets can be found here.

Lucky Monkey just released their latest EP and accompanying music video, and they'll be celebrating with a show at Doc Willoughby's Pub on March 29. The show, which starts at 10 p.m., features special guests Ancient Engines. Tickets are $10.

Gerry Dee has become a national icon thanks to his popular CBC sitcom and his tireless work ethic. The Canadian funnyman is bringing his stand up tour to Kelowna on March 29 at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Grab your tickets here. The show starts at 7 p.m.

Let's face it; everything breaks eventually. But if your prized possession has been broken, don't throw it away just yet. Head to the Okanagan College Trades Building on March 30 for a repair cafe. A group of volunteers will be on hand to repair your broken items and keep them from landfills. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Want to become an amateur beekeeper? Check out a by-donation workshop at the Laurel Packinghouse on March 30 from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. to learn all about mason bees. Bring a one-litre plasticized paper milk carton and they'll teach you how to create a DIY bee house.

Get an early start on your summer reading by stockpiling books at the March Madness book sale on March 31 at 4409 Lakeshore Rd. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hosted by the Kelowna Friends of the Library, funds raised at the sale will go to branches of the Okanagan Regional Library.

Death is a grim topic. The Kelowna Atheists, Skeptics, and Humanists Association is trying to spark a conversation about it to encourage people to live life to the fullest. They'll be hosting a death cafe at the Creekside Pub and Grill on March 31 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. They'll chat about making the most of finite lives in the shadow of death.

While you're checking out these events, make sure to enjoy our beautiful spring weather with a walk outside. Why not stop by the newly re-opened Kasugai Gardens and soak in the natural splendour?
