Those hoping to make the most out of summer’s last long weekend have plenty of things to do in the South Okanagan starting Friday night.

One last “Music in the Park” in Osoyoos (Sept. 2)

Park your lawn chairs at Osoyoos’ Gyro Park one last time this summer and get ready to dance because Music in the Park returns Friday with the Broadway Belles.

Anne Ramey, Beth Scott, Lisa Baxter-Burke, Sarah Senecal, and Troe Weston wrap up the town’s outdoor music series starting at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is free.

Inaugural Peachland Making Waves Mural Festival (Sept. 3 to 4)

Though not in the South Okanagan, the first-ever edition of this festival promises to “make waves” across the Interior.

Featuring live music, an open-air dance fusion experience and interactive street performances, the festival hopes to celebrate everything the arts have to offer.

Festivities take place at the Peachland Community Centre and Cousins Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., from Sept. 3 to 4.
