Climb aboard a 40-foot-long Ebus, pick up cookies from the Girl Guides or learn more about employment services from the North Okanagan Friendship Centre and Community Futures. And if you want to know what is happening in your community, check out the City of Vernon and Regional District of North Okanagan booths.

“Spring Expo is geared towards North Okanagan residents of all ages, and we are offering something for every interest, including financial institutions, travel agencies, several retirement living facilities and a range of great products and services,” said Chambers.

And if mom and dad are looking to keep the kids busy, Spring Expo is the place to be. On Friday night, there are a bouncy castle and Vernon Public Art Gallery activities, while on Saturday, the fun ramps up with the addition of a climbing wall, princesses, Kiki the Eco Elf, the Bug Guys and the Allan Brooks Nature Centre.

On Friday night, stop by the Vernon Vipers booth before the Vipers hit the ice for playoff action in the main arena.

“The chamber is all about business and our business is the community that we call home. There’s no better way to welcome spring than by bringing all of our friends and neighbours together. We look forward to seeing you at Spring Expo,” said Chambers.
