One of the  biggest sporting events the City of Kelowna will host this year is about to begin.

Over 4 thousand athletes are here for the 55 Plus BC Games.

President David Graham says his 13 hundred volunteers are ready to make this the best games ever.

"We have a remarkable group of people that are bringing leadership to this thing. The big rocks are in place and we are ready for these games."  

The opening ceremonies are Wednesday, but the athletes will be in the city tomorrow getting their credentials for the 4 day event.

"We are not doing this for the economic benefit in the community, but it is creating that opportunity for people to stay active in the sports and activities that they love", Graham added.

The majority of the events will take place Mission Recreation Park, the Apple Bowl and the Rutland Sports Park.
