Exciting act bounces into Penticton Peach Festival

There will be some high-flying thrills at the 67th annual Penticton Peach Festival.

There will be some high-flying thrills at the 67th annual Penticton Peach Festival.

The Trampoline Wall and Power Track Show, presented by the Lakeside Resort, will perform daily in Okanagan Lake Park during Peachfest. The show is produced by world-renowned Milord Entertainment, based in Quebec.   Milord is the same company that brought the Flying Fools high dive show to Peach Festival in 2011.

Yves Milord, the president of Milord Entertainment, has worked with Cirque de Soleil and currently has five touring acts throughout the North America.

To bounce on a trampoline while using a wall is comparatively new, according to Milord.

“This system allows the acrobat to carry out performances where he may walk on a vertical wall, enter by a window, land on the roof and bounce back on to the trampoline,” he said.

The second part of the show, the Power Track, is a 40-foot trampoline which accommodates a wide variety of thrilling acrobatics.

“The trampoline show is great family entertainment,” said Peach Festival entertainment director Bill Kolter. “You won’t believe what these people can do on a trampoline.”

Peach Festival is scheduled Aug. 6-10.   Headline performers at the festival include Emerson Drive, Trooper and The Stampeders. There is no admission charge.
