We need to appreciate and encourage the events that come to Penticton, such as the NHL Young Stars, the Challenge Penticton and the Axel Merckx Granfondo (to name a few).

We can also focus on different types of tourism such as eco-tourism and expanding festivals in the shoulder seasons. These festivals need to appeal to different demographics in the city (youth, families, seniors). I am always open to ideas.
