Vernon is busting at the seams.
As the long weekend approaches, accommodations are about 85 per cent full, with most of the motels and hotels in the lower price range sold out.
“We still have about 15 per cent availability at our higher end properties in town. However, booking requests are still coming in so we expect to be sold out before the weekend arrives,” said Ange Chew, the City of Vernon’s tourism manager.
“Provincial campsites are full, and the private campgrounds around Vernon are close to capacity but we are working with partners to stay on top of what is available and if any additional sites become available for the weekend.”
Full service RV sites are full but there are a few spots with limited services available around Vernon.
Among the events occurring this weekend are Canada Day celebrations, the Funtastic Sport and Music Festival, B.C. Mainstage and the Great Canadian FreeFall Festival.
