Then bright and early on Wednesday start your day off with a delicious pancake breakfast for $5.00 at Town Square from 7:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.  Each order prepared especially for you by the Osoyoos Rotary Club. 

The traditional water fight between Osoyoos bravest water-pistol slingers and the Osoyoos and Anarchist Volunteer Fire Department starts at 10:50 a.m. on Main Street between Home Hardware and Shoppers Drug Mart. So please if you do not want to get wet, stay out of these zones!. 

Once the mist has cleared, sit back, relax and enjoy the parade.  Starting at 11:00 a.m along Main Street Osoyoos, and dispersing two blocks passed Subway.  We will have a fabulous parade for you to enjoy, so cheer, chap and wave to each and every entry; as your response makes it worthwhile for all of the hard work they have done for your enjoyment.

Following the parade, head down to Gyro Beach for a full day of activities, live entertainment, cherry spit and cherry pie eating contests.  There will be food and craft venues, children’s activities on the beach, the Elks Beer Garden, or mosey on over to the Osoyoos Legion for beef on a bun and a cool refreshment.

A rocket rising and exploding seems to resemble a palm tree in the fireworks display that closed Cherry Fiesta on July 1. The fireworks show took place after the Osoyoos Times went to press last week, but more photos are shown on our website at www.OsoyoosTimes.com. Photographs of fireworks never appear exactly as they do to the human eye because they are taken over a period of several seconds, freezing seconds of action into a single frame. This photo was taken over eight seconds with the camera on a tripod at Cottonwood Park. (Richard McGuire photo)Then at dusk around 10:15 p.m. on the beach at Gyro Park, the Osoyoos Fireworks Committee will dazzle you with the Best Fireworks display in BC!!.  Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope that you will have a fabulous day.
