A fun festival in Vernon’s Polson Park put a successful wrap on another Interior Savings Unplug and Play Week.

The week is held to encourage kids to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

The activity-rich event is designed to bring atention to the effect of an inactive lifestyle on children, and show parents the abundance of opportunities for active living available in the North Okanagan.
