Description
Kelowna is the center of a fruit and vineyard region around Lake Okanagan, from which one-third of all apples harvested in Canada are shipped. The lake also is known for its legendary monster, the Ogopogo, a Loch Ness type beast reportedly 9 to 21 metres (30-69 ft.) long with a head resembling that of a horse, goat or sheep.
The Kelowna Community Theatre stages productions during fall and winter; phone (250) 763-9018. The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is another prominent cultural feature; phone (250) 763-7544.
Recreation in the area includes water sports, fishing and golf. City Park on Lake Okanagan is the city's largest park, with a beach, tennis courts and a children's water park. The Kelowna Princess II sets sail from the park's lakefront (end of Bernard Street). Departures are subject to weather conditions; for information and sailing times phone (250) 317-5628.
The fall grape harvest is celebrated for 11 days in early October at the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival. Wine and food lovers congregate to take in more than 165 events that take place throughout the Okanagan Valley.
