The little town of Oliver knows how to make you move and then reward yourself with fun.
The Inaugural Baldy Marathon was a racing success. Lots of runners from all over the world participated. Some crossed the finish line beating their personal best and some just crossed the finish line for fun.
The hard working people who bring you the race and winter fun at Mt Baldy. Victor Tsao, Stephanie O’Brien, Andy Foster, and Tony Munday.
The biggest event of the Oliver Year the 21st Festival of the Grape.
The wineries, grape stomping teams, local politicians were all in fine form for opening ceremonies.
We were greated by our hosts the Okanagan nation.
Some of the locals tried their hand at sabering. The art of wacking the top off a bubbly bottle with a saber.
The adults stomped grapes . . .
While the kids climbed to new heights.
Lots of great costumes!
Tony with the weather guy Duane English and the beautiful Wesla Wong.
More fun for the kids!
Fabulous Music for everyone to dance to.
However Festival of the Grape would not happen without the wonderful volunteers of all ages. And we send a special thank you to all of them!
George and Marie have volunteered for 21 year. A big extra thank you to you two!!
And of course the two people behind all this, Tony Munday.
And Rhoda! A great time was had by all! Well done crew and Oliver!
