Your mom is one of the most important people in your life. This Mother’s Day, instead of just spoiling her with flowers and chocolate, why not spend some quality time together? Whether it be in the spa at your Kelowna hotel or on a houseboat at a special Mother’s Day event, you’ve got some great choices for a mom-and-me retreat this May 11.
We’ve gathered up some information on some of the best Mother’s Day activities Kelowna has to offer this year.
1. The 2nd Annual Mother’s Day Charity Tour
This Sunday, start your day by taking a luxury coach to Kangaroo Creek Farms to meet up with some playful kangaroos. After playtime with the kangaroos is over, hop back onto the bus and be chauffeured over to Ancient Hill Winery for some VIP wine tastings and treats. Finish your afternoon together with a delicious lunch followed by a leisurely cruise on the Lake Lounge Houseboat. With so many fun-filled activities packed into one day, you and mom are sure to enjoy the Mother’s Day charity tour together.
2. Fintry Spring Fair Celebrating Mother’s Day
Spend Mother’s Day walking through the beautifully manicured grounds of the historic Manor House in Fintry Provincial Park. Stroll through the gardens, visit booths about gardening and crafting, sample delicious ethnic food and enjoy time with mom while the kids play in the bouncy castle. The Fintry Spring Fair has once again put together a first-class event sure to please moms with children of all ages..
3. Mother’s Day Tea
If mom’s little helper likes painting, visit the Color Me Mine paint studio for Mother’s Day Tea this Sunday. Tea, juice, and mini cupcakes will keep you satisfied while you and your kiddos create a lasting memory by leaving your personal brush strokes on a beautiful tea set keepsake together.
4. Mother’s Day Pampering
This year, why not give mom the gift of pampering? Many Kelowna hotels house renowned spas visited by tourists and locals alike. Our Wellness Spa offers half-day and full-day spa packages that include massages, manicures, facials and pedicures that are guaranteed to make mom feel rejuvenated and relaxed. Instead of taking care of the kids, mom can spend a day taking care of herself in a peaceful and serene atmosphere.
