The Grey Cup tour is hitting the Okanagan and starting with Penticton

The Festival Tour will be at Rotary Park until 7 p.m.

To drum up excitement ahead of the return of the Grey Cup to B.C. this year, the team is travelling through the Okanagan starting in Penticton.

The custom caravan pulled into Penticton on June 3, having arrived from the Kootenays the night before.

Set up at Rotary Park, the tour will be hanging out in the Peach City until 7 p.m.

The main draw is the fan cam videos, which invite people to take a video to which will become part of the Grey Cup Festival in November.

The videos invite people to share their fondest Grey Cup and CFL memories, or what they love most about their community.

Every video is entered into a draw for two tickets to the Grey Cup, two Grey Cup jerseys, two merch bags or two tickets to the tailgate party in Vancouver.

The Grey Cup Festival Tour of B.C., powered by LiUNA Local 1611, will visit 50 communities across B.C., from Prince George to Victoria to Castlegar to Penticton and everywhere in between.

After Penticton, it is headed up to Salmon Arm on June 6, Sicamous on June 7, Vernon on June 8 and Kelowna on June 9 to complete its Okanagan tour.
