It was a hot and exciting Canada Day weekend in the Okanagan.

From the Great Canadian Freefall Festival, to Fantastic, to celebrations in Polson Park the weekend was jammed back with action and fun.

Check out this photo gallery of some of the family actives that took place on July 1.

Social Squad member Anna Zeitner speaks with the organizer of the Great Canadian Freefall Festival organizer at Okangan Skydive to find out who and what is dropping in on Vernon.

While Matthew Abrey from the Squad spent the day in Polson Park taking in a skateboard competition and motocross.

Check out how the fun came to a close with these awesome fireworks in Vernon.
