Weekend In Review: June 1-2

I started out my week going to Bike to Work Week every morning! It was such a great event to meet people all over the community and then soon develop a connection with them after seeing them every day at a new station.  I didn’t ride a bike myself (It’s back home… In Ontario) but I did walk to work all week. That counts right?! Haha!

The Salvation Army celebrated 100 years of being in the Okanagan and I had the opportunity to join the fun at their festival on Saturday. Everything was down at Stuart Park and they had games, live music, bouncy castles and free food! Better yet the weather was great so a lot of people were coming to join the celebration to say “thank you” for all the years of community support.

Sunday morning I went to the Kelowna Kidney walk at Gyro Beach. There were return walkers and newbies at the event and they raised around 20 thousand dollars for this year’s walk. Some shared touching stories about how they have lived with kidney disease, surviving and sharing stories about people they know who have been touched by this disease.

The holistic market and psychic fair was a blast! I got a Traditional Japanese Pressure Point massage, really relaxing and perfect way to end the weekend. There were a lot of unique vendors like palm readers, Raw chocolate, crystals, tarot readings, tea leaf readings and psychics. There won’t be another market until the fall so mark your calendars.
