Canada Day 2021 in Kelowna is a no-go

The City of Kelowna and Festivals Kelowna have jointly decided to postpone Canada Day this year.

With phase three of the restart plan not allowing large outdoor gatherings until July 1 at the earliest, it is too obvious for the city to promise such a large event.

The Kelowna Canada Day celebrations are celebrated as one of the largest in the province with over 65,000 guests each year.
