Penticton, Festivals & Events
Wow! The Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival
was a huge success. For the first time ever the two big events, the Saturday Night Tribute Show and the Sunday Judged Finals, sold out completely. This has become a very impressive event, attracting top talent from around North America.
Between the Elvis Festival and the Peach City Beach Cruise
, it was really amazing to see the traffic in downtown Penticton. There were people everywhere because both events took place within the same two block radius. On top of that, the Penticton Farmer's Market STILL ran on Saturday morning.
Talk about things to do! Summer in Penticton is jammed with so many great things: sun, sand, festivals, fresh fruit, wineries... the list goes on.
