The 12meter high white statue in Kelowna is so grand I'd like to purchase a smaller statue for our coffee table if possible. Does anyone in the Okanagan know of a store (online or otherwise) that sells mini versions of this masterpiece? I'm in Edmonton, a province away and can't get back there any time soon.

I'm looking for a campsite area that does not care about loud music and drinking late at night for May long. Showers are not needed. An out-house would be nice but not necessary. Thanks!
I spent a couple years in Kelowna as a wee child and fondly remember the Valley Fruit Stand on Harvey Avenue which is no longer there (not as a fruit stand anyway). One of the things that I cherished was the cold cherry cider (non-alcoholic) they used to serve from a keg--it was delicious! I've visited Kelowna on the occasional long-weekend over the years without thinking about that cider but suddenly the memory of has come back to me and on my next trip (coming up in a couple weeks) I'd like to sample that good old cherry cider once again. Can anyone tell me where I can find some bottles of it? Would love to bring a couple bottles back to Edmonton with me too. Please and thanks!
Hi, I am travelling to Vancouver and Calgary via Kelowna in September and I am hoping to do a skydive (for the first time). Does anyone know of a cheap (and reliable of course :-)) Skydiving Association? In either the Vancouver, Okanagan Valley or Calgary areas? I'm aware that the weather may not be guaranteed in September. Thanks
Hello, we are planning a few days trip to Okanagan region after we move to Vancouver. We are interested in touring the vineyards and fruit ochards. Is May too early for orchards? We will likely want to stay in Peachland or Summerland. Any B&B to recommend?
Hi, I haven't been to Kelowna in a while (ie. 10+ years). Planning a 3 day bachlor party. Anyone have thoughts on which nightclubs are hot these days, and what type of crowds they have? I heard the Mix nightclub is good. True/false? What sort of crowd does the Mix have? Is it on its way up or down, so to speak. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for any comments at all.

Hello from Winnipeg!!! My husband and I are thinking to move to Kelowna with our two kids age 15 and 13. We were there this past August and we liked it a lot.Can you tell me which are the good family areas and schools? Is it a good city to raise kids? We also owned a small family restaurant in Winnipeg and we are thinking to open one there too, can you give us general information about the city, because we heard negative things about Kelowna from checking the forums.We would greatly appreciate it if you could give us your honest opinion about the pros and cons. Thank you again.
A question for fellow BC folks. We have some friends coming over form the UK in June and we wanted to take them west (mainly because we want to go!). They're in VanC for a couple of week but they're going to spend some time in Vic and then head on to Banff so we were going to take them as far as Kelowna and then they can do the rest themselves. We were are contemplating four days from the 23rd- 26th of June (Cherry season I hear). 23rd - To start we were going to head for Manning Provincial Park via a stop over at Harrison Hot Springs. 24th - Visit to Penticton (were thinking of stopping a night here). 25th - Kelowna for the final night before driving back to VanC Other than visiting vineyards and hiking what else does the Okanagan have in store for us? We were going to camp at Manning Park but as for where to stay in Kelowna and Penticton any recommendations will be appreciated. In addition would it be more advisable to base ourselves out of just one town as they're pretty close together. All tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Azim...

Hi, I'll be flying into Kelowna in the late evening and staying the night at the sameSun backpacker's hostel before heading off to Big White early the next morning for 11 days skiing. I'm hoping to pick up some grocery items in Kelowna. Does anyone know if there is a grocery store near the hostel that is open at night? And do you know how far the airport is from town and the best way to get to/from the airport to the hostel? Thanks, alison
Hi we're thinking of taking a trip to the Kelowna area to visit a nice sandy beach and hopefully to find an orchard or farm that offers u-pick for maybe strawberries or peaches? I know about the park right in Kelowna along the lake but was wondering if anyone knows one that might not be quite as busy but is still easy to get to with young kids. My girls are 5 & 7 and don't like walking a long ways plus won't pee in bushes so we need at least an outhouse. I know there are orchards that offer tours but I haven't been able to find much info on u-pick farms and what seasons carry what fruit. We're thinking August this year. So any suggestions?
Hey people, I'm looking for campsites in Jasper, Banff, Lake Louise, Glacier park , and Whistler. Any suggestion? Prices? How to get it by bus? Thanks, Simone
