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.
