Saturday, December 6th, 2014
11am - 5pm

 

We're excited. Like it’s-gonna-be-so-super-sweet excited. Santa is comin’ to town for the 26th Annual Downtown Kelowna Light Up! on Saturday, December 6th, 2014 from 10am - 5pm, and we want to celebrate! Decorate a cookie to devour. Listen to live tunes, and then make some of your own at the Wentworth Musical Petting Zoo. Get crafty. Show off your ice skating skills after having a penguin painted on your face. Sit on Santa’s lap.

Not enough? Fine. We’ll light up a ginormous Christmas tree in Kerry Park at 5pm that night. It’s going to be stocking-loads-of-awesome. True story.
