KAMLOOPS - This weekend marks the unofficial end of summer for many people and with it also brings the end of several notable summer activities, including Music in the Park and alpine hiking at Sun Peaks.

The final weekend of Music in the Park brings Sabrina Weeks to the McDonald Park stage Friday night and Blue Mules, Sally and the Melo Hearts and Earthbound to the Riverside Stage Friday through Sunday.

Sun Peaks will be hosting the last of a series of free concerts held over the summer with the Arkells, Hey Ocean! and Elliott Brood as well as several other artists, free outdoor yoga and then the weekly farmers’ market on Sunday. It will also be the last weekend of operation for the Sunburst chairlift until ski season starts Nov. 22.

On Saturday, Momstown is hosting Picassos in the Park, an art and play program, at Riverside Park and as always the farmers’ market, complete with wine samples and artisan vendors, will take place along St. Paul Street and at St. Andrews on the Square Saturday morning.

Friday through Monday you can take in the annual dog show, which will include obedience and rally trials, at Centennial Park in Westsyde and the corn maze at Tranquille Farm Fresh Market also opens this Saturday.

For those willing to kick summer to the curb and get a jump on winter, the Blazers hit the ice Friday night to take on the Vancouver Giants in the first of five preseason games. They will then travel to Kelowna for a Saturday night game as well.
