The Downtown Penticton Association is inviting everyone to Gyro Park to celebrate B.C. Day on Monday.

“I’m really looking forward to looking out across the park and seeing lots of families in the shade, enjoying a great day of entertainment. There will be lots to do, 40 market vendors and on the link road we will have all our outstanding food trucks,” said Jackey Zellweger, marketing and special events manager for the DPA.

Entertainment on the bandshell stage starts at 10 a.m. with the Bubble Wonders bubble show, followed by blues/soul singer Shaughnessy Rose, country singers Beamer Wigley and Abby Stewart, a ceremony at noon, rockers Cosmic Brew, Get Bent Dance and finishes with rock/country band Gypsy &The Rose.

Zellweger said new this year in the free family activities is a bouncy castle waterslide and a climbing mountain for the older kids.
