Korinetz wants to show support to artistic winter events

City of Penticton: Korinetz, David — Council Candidate answers how would you go about boosting sports and other alternate types of tourism?

We have the events centre, the Hockey School, the Challenge Penticton Triathlon, Peachfest, the Elvis Festival, and the Peach City Beach Cruise.

Sports, music, cars and family fun are all great, but in addition to supporting these, I would push to have the city take a more active role in supporting artistic winter events, such as local theatre, local concerts, literary events, and the Arts Awards which takes place next February.
