It’s Beatles Day today! The Beatles were a phenomenon back in the day, writing such classic songs as “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and “A Day In The Life”. Any time they played or performed, it was a big event. So in honour of the big events that were Beatles concerts, we at West Harbour wanted to let you know about some of the bigger local events in downtown Kelowna near you this month. We’ll give you the what, where, when, and why of each event as well as where to find more information about them.
