Canada Day in Osoyoos, BC

Last week I was on vacation in Osoyoos, BC - an amazing desert landscape and one of the most fertile valleys in Canada. My husband and I celebrated Canada Day by taking part in some of the festivities during the 64th annual Cherry Fiesta including..............

Pancake Breakfast - we have done this at home in Sidney every Canada Day and wanted to support the Osoyoos Lions Club.

Pancakes, bacon and syrup - yummy way to start the day!

the Cherry Fiesta Parade

Ready and waiting for the parade - flags courtesy of the local Cadets.

Local firefighters dressed 'in drag' and carrying WATER PACKS - a fun water fight between rival firefighters starts the festivities - one block is set aside as the 'water zone' in case you don't want to get wet!

and a spectacular end to the day with the second largest fireworks display in Canada!  We watched from the rooftop of the Spirit Ridge Resort.
