The celebration kicks of with a wrestling match at the Pat Duke Arena Thursday,  and then events run from Friday to Sunday.

“We will have extra officers on duty,” said Cpl. Henry Proce. “In addition, we should get support on the highways from North Okanagan Traffic Services, and auxiliary constables will be out on their bicycles.”

Grow-up busted

Police responded to an assault with a weapon complaint May 22 on Begbie Road in Cherryville, and ended up finding a marijuana grow operation.

No charges were laid as a result of the assault.

About 800 small- and medium-sized marijuana plants were seized.

No charges have been laid in relation to the grow-op, but the investigation continues.
