KELOWNA – Whether it's hockey action, maybe antiques and collectables, some classical music, a good cause to support or you just want a party, there is something for everyone’s tastes this weekend in Kelowna.

The 10th Annual Women and Wine Open House for the Kelowna Women’s Shelter goes Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cedar Creek Estate Winery on Lakeshore Road. The event includes wine, tasty treats and booths from local businesses, artisans and crafters. Reservations are not required and admission is by donation.

The Youth Symphony of the Okanagan is performing at the First Lutheran Church on Lakeshore Road. It’s the 25th year for the youth symphony and they’ll be celebrating with the concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Rosemary Thomson and Dennis Colpitts will be sharing the conducting duties. It features guitar soloist Jonathan Stuchbery performing Rogdrigo’s ‘Fantasia papa un gentilhombre.’

If you aren’t done with Halloween, you can dress up for ‘Bring Back the Dead' at Habitat Saturday night. The Kelowna Medical Society event features skits and performances and a costume contest with a prize of $250. As well, you can strut your stuff at the Sugar Skull Strut with the bank Locarno at the Rotary Centre of the Arts Friday night. It’s billed as a Day of the Dead alternative to the regular Halloween fair. Plus there’s the Day of the Dead event being put on the JCI Okanagan on Friday night. It’s at the Michael Brook Ranch Golf Course. Zombies and sugar skulls are welcome. The DJ goes from dusk until dawn.

The Legends of Rock ‘n Roll are in town with the Class of ’59 show at the Kelowna Community Theatre Saturday at 8 p.m. The show features tribute artists putting on a jam session. Imagine Buddy Holly on guitar, Jerry Lee Lewis tickling the ivories and the Big Bopper on bass, with Elvis and the Everly Brothers dropping in to add their voices.

If antiques and collectibles are more your speed, be at the Rutland Centennial Hall Friday night and all day Saturday. It’s the 7th Annual Antique and Collectable Show. There will be an array of items from advertising memorabilia to jewelry, books, china, furniture, toys, novelties and oddities. It’s a donation to get in with all the money going to the hall’s charity fund. The show goes Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

On Saturday night, the Heart Truth – Red Dress Event is being held at the downtown branch of the Okanagan Regional Library. It’s the 2nd annual fashion show fundraiser celebrating women and women’s heart health. The event includes music, a silent auction, wine and appies. Red attire is encouraged.

Sporting action this weekend includes home games for the West Kelowna Warriors and the Kelowna Chiefs. The Trail Smoke Eaters are visiting the Warriors Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Royal LePage Place. The Chiefs host the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Friday night and the Revelstoke Grizzlies Saturday night. Both games start at 7 p.m. at the Rutland Arena.
