KELOWNA - Love and snow are in the air, which means Valentine's Day is right around the corner. If you're scrambling for great date night ideas, or if you're looking for something fun for single people, check out this quick sampling of what to do in Kelowna tomorrow.

What's Valentine's Day without flowers? The Lavender and Lace Floral Farm is reopening its flower shop for one day only on Feb. 14. Check out a wide variety of beautiful flowers from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 3609 Gordon Dr.

Join the MTL Supper Club at 1851 Kirschner Rd. from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for a pairing of meals with island-based wines from Australia, New Zealand and Vancouver Island. The four-course dinner is $55.

Most people have an intense love affair with pizza so why not use that love for good? DunnEnzies Pizza on Ellis Street is offering a small, two-topping pizza and a Valentine's-inspired cocktail combo for $16. Best of all, $2 from every combo purchase will go to the Kelowna Women's Shelter.

If you're looking for a great dinner date, check out Start Fresh Kitchen on 1708 Dolphin St. for a collaborative dinner. Three top chefs will work together to create a stunning six course meal. Tickets can be found here.

The Kelowna Arts Council will be bringing the laughs with its My Funny Valentine comedy show at Dakoda's Sports Bar and Grill. Okanagan comics will be entertaining the audience for hours at this free show which starts at 7 p.m.

Don't Look Down Tattoos is offering a new look in support of a good cause. On Feb. 14 they'll be giving pre-drawn heart tattoos roughly the size of a quarter. All donations will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The event is cash only and the minimum donation is $25.

Solstice Yoga on Doyle Avenue is turning Valentine's into Galentine's with a special women-only yoga class from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $45 and proceeds go to the Karis Support Society. Space is limited to 25 people.

Curious couples should check out the Kelowna Art Gallery from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for a Valentine's Day adventure. Visitors will receive a Valentine's challenge card and explore the wide variety of works in the gallery at this free event. Participants can also create custom cards using decorative Japanese papers.

Singles and couples looking for a February workout should head to Beyond the Crux Climbing Gym on Finns Road. There will be a special $10 drop-in fee for visitors to climb to their heart's content from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

If you're trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of Valentine's Day in the city, why not take your snowshoes or skis for a trek through the Telemark Nordic Club in West Kelowna? Venture deep into the woods along their well-maintained trails between 8 a.m and 9 p.m. Ticket prices can be found here.

Want to avoid Valentine's Day entirely? Get down and dirty with a free mechanic clinic at UBCycles on University Way from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The workshop encourages questions, so if you're looking to learn why your bicycle keeps squeaking, this clinic is for you.

In Canada, there's nothing more romantic than ice skating. So grab your blades and enjoy a free evening under the stars at the Stuart Part outdoor rink. Make sure to check the weather before you head out.
