It’s Canada Day, which means that on this day in 1867 the British North America Act was passed, creating Canada as we know it. It also means there’s any number of different “happenings”, or events, going on in Kelowna to celebrate the occasion! And we here at West Harbour can’t wait to tell you all about them! As per usual, we’ll give you the what, where, when, and why of each event as well as where to find more information about them. Happy 151st birthday, Canada! We raise our glasses to another great 151 more!
