Parks Alive! Is cancelled tonight due to extreme heat.

Festivals Kelowna made the decision to cancel the Two Steppin’ Tuesday show in Quarry Park at about 1 p.m.

“This decision was made with the safety of our performers, audience, technical team, and staff in mind,” read a notice from Festivals Kelowna on Facebook.

A heat warning is in effect for the region as temperatures climb to almost 40 C. Environment Canada is forecasting overnight lows of 18 C.

This robust high-pressure ridge across the southern interior is expected to persist through Thursday.

However, Festivals Kelowna is planning to continue with Latin Beat at Waterfront Park on Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m.
