Water St. from Doyle Ave. to Queensway roundabout will be closed to vehicles from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The Downtown Kelowna Winter Street Market and Tree Light Up, presented by Rogers, will celebrate the beginning of the holiday season this Sunday (Dec. 1).

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Water Street will be home to a festive street market featuring local vendors, food truck eats and even some adult beverages.

You can also spend some time in the Rogers Winter Lounge warming up with your friends and family, snap a pic in the free photo booth, or grab an exclusive event mug by donation, and fill it up with complimentary hot chocolate or coffee from Pulp Fiction and Fido.

Stuart Park will host live music, activities for all ages, local charity fundraisers, skating and a special guest. Find him in the Santa HQ Dome.

The event will culminate with the 31st annual Tree Light Up at 6pm with Santa, Rogers and the Kelowna Rockets.

Water Street from Doyle Avenue to Queensway roundabout will be closed to vehicles from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the event.

Parking will be restricted as of 6 a.m. to prepare for the road closure. Vehicles parked along this stretch will be courtesy towed to City Hall parking lot.
