Here’s what’s happening this weekend in Penticton

Vees hockey, international curling and a throwback to one of music’s most relived eras

Memories of a warmer-than-normal October in Penticton were erased within hours on Thursday, as the community gears up for a chilly, early-November weekend.

Vees look to stay hot (Nov. 4 to 5)

It’s been more than six months since the Penticton Vees lost a game, and they’ll aim to keep their red-hot momentum going this weekend at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Penticton welcomes the Prince George Spruce Kings on Friday and the Wenatchee Wild on Saturday, with puck drop set for 7 p.m. and 6 p.m. for each game, respectively.

The Vees own a 14-0-0-0 record this season. Dating back to last year’s playoffs, the team has won 30 games in a row.

Tickets for the weekend are available here.
