Wild West Fest action at Centennial Park made Okanagan Falls the place to be last weekend

Okanagan Falls festival enjoys a second successful run

Excellent late summer weather helped entice a large turnout to this year’s Wild West Fest in Okanagan Falls. Many of the activities doubled as fundraisers for various community endeavours.

The Wild West Fest took advantage of some great late September weather as crowds of people converged on Centennial Park in Okanagan Falls on Friday and Saturday last week.

The agenda packed event had something for everyone, with an excellent mix of food vendors that were selling everything from traditional fair food like hamburgers to more exotic meals such as Thai or Greek food.

A steady line up of talented musicians kept the audience entertained throughout Saturday afternoon, with many people coming in from out of town to listen to the country and western bands that finished off this year’s event on Saturday evening.

A number of other vendors selling services or crafts, local and otherwise, were also set up throughout the park. The unseasonably hot weather didn’t hurt sales at the beverage garden either, as temperatures touched the 30 degree mark.
