Greetings from Oliver

Happy belated Canada Day!

Yesterday was a whirlwind of parades and cities.

The morning started off with the Osoyoos Cherry Fiesta/Canada Day parade, and even though it kept trying to rain, there was a good turnout. I rode on the back of a blue sporty convertible Miata.

Next was a quick luncheon, some public speaking from the band shell by the beach and many photo ops.

After that we travelled to Oliver to get ready, and headed to Peachland for their Canada Day parade.

Unfortunately, it rained most of the route.

We, the three lovely Oliver ambassadors and I, rode inside our black pickup truck so our hair wouldn’t frizz. But eventually the sun peaked out, so we hopped out of the truck mid-route and popped into the back.

Dinner in Penticton followed, then back to Oliver to change, and then back to Osoyoos for the fireworks. (The town went all out: the fireworks were spectacular.)

I had planned on blogging about yesterday’s events yesterday, but exhaustion won out over timeliness.

On today’s agenda: the Princeton parade and pageant, and a midnight drive to Williams Lake.

Tweet me!
