The taps were flowing at City Park as thousands converged downtown for the Kelowna Beer Fest on Saturday.

The festivities took over a section of the park for a majority of the day as patrons were split into two sessions this year to allow for more space and less crowds.

“We brought more breweries, more shade…it's been great to be able to have a little bit less people per timeslot – spread it out some more.

And was the shade ever enjoyed by event attendees as Kelowna tied a 31-year-old temperature record on Saturday with a high of 31.1℃.

The festival is expanding to three days this year and is scheduled for the 2024 Labour Day weekend.
