CentrePiece weekend

The cherished Lake Country tradition, Centrepiece, is returning to the grounds of Okanagan Centre Prk, Sunday August 28 from 11 am to 3:30 pm.

The cherished Lake Country tradition, Centrepiece, is returning to the grounds of Okanagan Centre Prk, Sunday August 28 from 11 am to 3:30 pm.  The event is known for many attendees dressing up in old fashioned costume for the Devonshire Tea.  Many people come for the hot dogs, hamburgers, children’s games and floats in one last summer opportunity to come together as a community.

One of the organizers, Eleanor Geen, says plans are coming together well.  There is an expectation that about 80 to 100 people will come out for the event depending on the weather.

“This is for all of the residents of Lake Country,” says Geen.  “A lot of people stop in while on their way past the park on Okanagan Centre Road.”

The festivities are kept moving along with live music from the Lake Country Big Band.  The games and entertainment are all free with tickets to be purchased for the food.

The Devonshire Tea begins at 1 pm.  Scones, whip cream and fruit confit will be served.  Some ladies from the community have been attending the Tea for more than 20 years.

Geen hopes everyone knows just how welcome they are at Centrepiece, “The community can come together and enjoy summer.”
