Kiddies' Day and Parade Information & Registration

The A&W Kiddies Day kicks off with well-known children’s entertainer Cotton Candy. A&W Kiddies Day events are scheduled from 12 noon to 3:00pm, followed by regular Peachfest entertainment until 10:00p.m.

In addition to live entertainment, the free fun includes: Face painting, a petting zoo, bouncy castles, a waterslide, balloon animals and a lego play table. The petting zoo is sponsored by Home Hardware.

There will be an admission charge for pony rides and for Shooting Star Amusements rides in nearby Rotary Park.

The Kiddies’ Day Parade is back again this year and is expected to have more entries than ever before! Children between the ages of 0 & 12 are encouraged to decorate their bikes, wagons or scooters in the wildest and most creative way possible then show off their creations in a one-of-a-kind parade down Main Street. There are amazing prizes for People’s Choice, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place plus the Grand prize of a new bicycle. This is a very special parade and we encourage you not to miss it. Bring your cameras!

Judging will take place at 11:15 am at the City Centre parking lot, then at 11:30am, a City of Penticton Fire Truck will lead all participants north on Main Street, east on Lakeshore Drive and into Okanagan Lake Park through the Centennial Plaza entrance. Prizes are awarded for several categories/age groups at the main stage in Okanagan Lake Park directly after the parade.
