Snowbirds Aerial Show
When: July 30
Where: Downtown Kelowna
What: The Canadian Forces' Snowbirds will showcase their military aerobatic skills over Okanagan Lake on Wednesday, July 30, from approximately 5 - 5:35 p.m. For the best seats in the house, spectators are encouraged to view the show from Kerry Park or Waterfront Park.
There will be no traffic restrictions during this event, but boaters are asked to stay out of the "sterile zone" on Okanagan Lake which will be marked by orange buoys. The Snowbirds will not fly if there are boats inside the sterile zone. Signs will be posted at all boat launches notifying boaters of the restricted zone. RCMP boats will be in the lake to ensure there are no boats in this zone and will be monitoring the area.
The Water Street, Queensway and Sutherland Bay boat launches will be closed from 2 - 6 p.m. Parks Ambassadors will also be stationed at the Cook Street boat launch from 2 - 5 p.m. to direct boaters and provide additional information about the "sterile zone".
Anticipating that there will be increased traffic on Knox Mountain Drive, the road will be closed to incoming traffic from 3 to approximately 6 p.m.; however, vehicles will be able to exit during that time period. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
