Fireworks over the lake 

Penticton Lakeside Resort is hosting a fireworks show above Okanagan Lake, starting at 10 p.m. This year, it will ignite from a barge on the water in front of Okanagan Lake Park. Be aware that boaters on Okanagan Lake will not be allowed to enter the designated safety zone marked around the barge on the water.

The ideal locations to view the show include anywhere along Okanagan Beach and the lakeshore, Marina Way Park, Rotary Park, Lakawanna Park, Munson Mountain or higher elevations. The local restaurants and patios along Lakeshore Drive will also provide ideal vantage points. For more information, visit
