April 12, 2017

penticton spring flingAaahh, Penticton in spring! It’s glorious! Right now the entire Okanagan Valley is waking up from winter and shining with colour. The blossoms are out, the mountains look stunning, and the roads are clear. The driving season is upon us… which means so is BC’s carnival season!

When you think of Penticton and carnivals, you probably think of the world famous Penticton Peach Festival, often just called Peachfest. But that’s in August, which is still months away. You need a dose of fun NOW!

Well, then come to the 2017 Penticton Spring Fling!

Come to Perfect Penticton

With the average May daytime maximum hitting a perfect 20 degrees, come enjoy Shooting Star’s midway rides, games and food from May 26th to 28th. On those days, we’ll have everything set up at the South Okanagan Events Centre, 853 Eckhardt Ave West

This year’s Spring Fling starts at 4:00 pm on Friday May 26th. On both the Saturday and Sunday, the rides open at noon. We will be providing midway fun and carnival thrills like only we can. Can you think of any better view from the Ferris Wheel than looking at Okanagan Lake? Can you think of fresher air for riding the Zero Gravity and Zipper rides? Can you think of a more exciting setting for enjoying those delightful mini-donuts?

This year’s Penticton Spring Fling will be sure to give you plenty of reasons to smile and laugh with family and friends.

Ride Discounts for Using Facebook!

Forget the hassle of buying individual ride tickets or books of tickets. Buy wristbands and save! A wristband entitles the wearer to all-day rides.

We have great ride specials during the Spring Fling. On Friday and Sunday you can get a great deal when you purchase wristbands! You save $10 off the regular price… but ONLY if you show us on your phone that you’ve liked Shooting Star’s Facebook page and shared some of our posts.

Games and Food to Delight

If rides aren’t your cup of tea, the Spring Fling will give you the chance to enjoy the best midway attractions. Walk down Memory Lane as you relive some of those classic carnival games from your childhood. Test your skill (and luck) with Balloon Pop or a good ol’ shooting gallery. Watch kids laugh and smile at Gone Fishin’ and win a prize every time they play.

Then all that fresh Okanagan air will make you hungry and the breeze will bring to your nostrils the sweet and savoury aromas of our fabulous food. Aside from the old favourites like the mini-donuts, cotton candy, hotdogs, popcorn, and fresh lemonade, try some great Greek food, walking tacos, and more!

See You Soon!

Penticton is the perfect destination to shed your winter woes and enjoy our Spring Fling. It will keep you absolutely delighted until Peachfest 2017 rolls around in summer.

While you’re here, check out some of this city’s other great offerings, from gorgeous scenery and hiking along Skaha Lake, to the fresh and fabulous farmers market, not to forget the beer and wine tours. Penticton has something for everyone.
