It’s February…normally British Columbians are looking longingly at the calendar for the next upcoming holiday, which will allow them a long weekend to escape to a hotel in Kelowna or indulge in a day off with loved ones.
Get ready to mark your calendars, pack your bags and grab your family ‘cuz February 11th 2013 marks the first Family Day in BC! Parents, children and travelers across the province are gearing up to celebrate this holiday and our Kelowna hotel has some great ideas on what to do with your family.
Parkinson Recreation Centre, Kelowna BC
Spend an affordable day of fun in the pool and at four themed stations, where visitors will be able to take part in face painting, storytelling circles and to learn about B.C.'s natural riches. Being such an incredible place to live and visit, communities throughout BC are celebrating Family Day too - each in their own special way!
BC Ski Resorts, throughout BC
In honor of our newest holiday, many BC ski resorts are offering half-price lift tickets to BC residents on that day! Score! Our local Okanagan ski resorts are amazing this time of year and in addition to hitting the slopes, offer plenty of family activities. Visit Canada West Ski Areas Association for more details.
Best Western PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, Kelowna BC
What is our Kelowna hotel’s idea of a perfect Family Day? To spend it at our hotel with us of course! Play in the pool then head back to your spacious comfy guest room for a night of movies & snacks when you book our Family Fun Night Package.
Whatever your plans are this Family Day, just focus on making the day all about family. Be a tourist in your own town or city. Try spending the day visiting art exhibitions or skating on outdoor ice rinks. Go for a walk or hike in your favorite BC Park. Stay indoors for movies, crafts and board games.
Can you feel the family love? We can!
