PENTICTON - The annual home show event taking place this weekend in Penticton should help focus thoughts on spring and home improvement projects, even if the weather isn’t providing similar encouragement.

The Canadian Home Builders Association South Okanagan 23rd annual Home and Renovation Show takes place at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre on Saturday, March 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, March 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It’s billed as the best home building and renovating show in the Okanagan at a cost of $4 at the door. For more information, see the Canadian Home Builders Association South Okanagan website.

For those intent on pursuing winter activities, the Mile High Challenge takes place on Saturday, March 3 starting at the Gunbarrel Saloon at Apex Mountain Resort.

The challenge is a race from the Gunbarrel to the top of the hill using your own power, whether that be on snowshoes, hiking boots, ski or snowboard boots.

Once at the top competitors ski back to the finish line on the Grandfathers Trail. The top three finishers in both men and women’s categories are up for cash prizes.

The event costs $30 to enter and starts at 2:30 p.m. For more information, visit the Apex website.
