The Lake Country Museum is inviting the community to Okanagan Centre Park for the traditional CentrePiece festival Sunday, August 24th, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This family-oriented event will feature many of the much loved activities from past years and adds several new activities, still in keeping with the theme of an early 1900s garden party. The event is free and visitors are encouraged to dress up in old fashioned garb.
The Westside Ramblers, a musical duo from across the lake, will be performing, as will local musician Ron Short. Peter Blundell will be on site with his Heirloom Discovery appraisals, an antiques roadshow style of appraising local treasures and antiques (appraisals must be pre-booked through the Lake Country Museum and a 15 minute session is $36.25). This year’s event also includes an old fashioned photo shoot where you can have your photo taken in period costume in front of the historic Wentworth cabin. Activities for the children will include the traditional sack races and new games, with the Big White Loose Moose and a bouncy castle. Save room for hamburgers, hotdogs, root beer floats and the featured Devonshire Tea, with homemade scones, whipped cream, and fresh jam!
During the festival, the Lake Country Museum will also be open for tours by donation, where you can take a step back in time with some of Lake Country’s earliest artifacts.
