The air is crisper, the days are shorter and for many of us, the glow of summer vacation has faded and we are back into a routine of back-to-school or preparing to make a move South for the winter.
There is plenty to look forward to in the Okanagan to celebrate Fall, starting with Oktoberfest at the Gasthaus On The Lake in picturesque Peachland. Running from September 14-16 & 21-23, this popular lakefront dining destination knows how to throw an Oktoberfest party, including traditional live music and a pig on a spit! Visit www.gasthaus.ca for more information.
On Sunday, September 23rd, Summerhill Winery will host the 7th Annual Organic Okanagan Festival featuring an array of displays, vendors, activities and live music, perfect for a family outing! Visit www.okanagangreens.ca for more information.
Finally, it wouldn't be Fall in the Okanagan without the Fall Wine Festival! The most popular of all of the wine festivals held throughout the year, it runs from September 28th through to October 7th. You can follow them on Twitter @OKWineFests or get more info at www.thewinefestivals.com.
Enjoy the change of the season, the sun is shining and we are lucky to live in the Okanagan!
