KELOWNA – The unusually wet summer has destroyed almost half a dozen of Kelowna’s Pianos in the Park.

Five of the now-famous Pianos in the Park are no longer working and the group behind their installation are hoping to find final resting places or they will have to be destroyed.

The brightly-colored upright pianos were scattered around Kelowna last spring for tourists and residents to play. Today, Oct. 4, the group announced through their website the pianos would not be available to the public but could be delivered to your home free of charge.

“These 2016 pianos from our program are seeking a place to retire and call home. Due to an abundance of rain in June; five of this years' pianos are not in shape to stick around for another season.”

Two of the pianos that are available were painted by Disney, one was done by Kelowna Museum, the Tunnel Piano by Hot Sands Beach is also available as is the one near Stuart Park.

To learn more or to claim one call 250-868-3307 or visit the Pianos in the Park Facebook page.
