Hundreds gathered for grand opening at Okanagan Buddhist Cultural Centre in Kelowna

The event included celebrations for Parents Day

The Okanagan Buddhist Cultural Centre was a busy place Sunday (Sept. 4) for its grand opening.

With a few hundred people in attendance, speeches were made by several of those invloved in the project, Buddhist monks and nuns, and city of Kelowna representatives.

The two-hour ceremony began at 11 a.m. and also marked Parents Day.

Those unable to attend had the opportunity to watch the ceremony online, as the centre live-streamed the event.

The new centre is located on Mugford Road in the old St. Aidan’s Church built in 1933.
