Oyama Fun Day this Sunday

This annual event is a tribute to the spirit of Oyama.

Oyama Fun Day—Fun for Everyone, goes Sunday, June 2.

This annual event, sponsored by the Oyama Community Club, 15710 Oyama Rd., is a tribute to the spirit of Oyama. With the help of many volunteers the club offers a jam packed day of fun for families.

The fun begins at 8 a.m. with the Pancake Breakfast, Silent Auction and the famous Peep Peep Poop contest.

The parade looks to be the largest and longest yet, drawing many local businesses and groups as well as dignitaries from throughout the Okanagan.

Oyama Road will be closed from the Oyama General Store to Oyama Traditional School from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m. June 2 for the parade.

The afternoon activities get underway with some good old-fashioned games of tug-of-war, sack races, ice cream eating contest and egg toss. The youngsters will be kept entertained for the rest of the afternoon with the Kids Games Pavilion, DLC Bounce Zone, Lake Country Agility Mutts, SECA Watersport Demo, Sportball and lots of other community sponsored activities.

There is something for everyone with the Oyama Firemen’s Burger Burn, the Oyama Sunblush Bake Shop, Lake Country Big Band, Oyama Legion Open House, Farmers Market and Artisans and much more.

Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the day of fun.
