One of the most popular acts in the history of the Penticton Peach Festival is returning this year.
The Penticton Lakeside Resort is sponsoring the West Coast Lumberjack Show, three times per day, from Aug. 8-11, in Okanagan Lake Park.
“They attracted huge crowds when they were here in 2009,” said Bill Kolter, the festival’s entertainment director. “It is a great show; exciting, fun and suitable for the whole family.”
The show features all of the popular logger sports including the springboard chop, axe throwing, pole climbing, a hot saw race and log rolling.
“We are happy to include Penticton in our 2012 schedule,” said Darren Dean spokesperson for the lumberjacks. “We had a great time at Peach Festival a few years ago … and we’re looking forward to returning.”
The Penticton Peach Festival recently announced that legendary Canadian rockers, Lighthouse, will be headlining on opening night, Aug. 8. There is no admission charge for Peachfest entertainment.
