What a couple of weeks we’ve had here on the orchard! The whole gang here at Gatzke Orchards have been busy little bees as the taste of summer is finally in the air. With over 50 varieties of fruit on the orchard, we’ll soon be tantalizing your tastebuds with our famous cherries!
Life. The Okanagan Way!
We’ve had a steady flow of international visitors coming to visit us the last couple of weeks leading up to Canada Day 2013. This past month we hosted the Oyama Traditional School 7th Grade graduation party and Louise & Mike launched our 2013 wedding season with a fun-filled celebration!
We are also excited to announce that we opened the doors to the new LAKE COUNTRY VISITOR CENTRE, now located at the Gatzke Orchard entrance.
The Lake Country Visitor Centre staff has been hard at work preparing for the summer season. For the first time in Lake Country history, the centre hosted a Familiarization Tour on June 25th. Staff and volunteers of both the Lake Country and Kelowna offices participated in this exciting and informative day. The FAM Tour trained our staff about the various tourist attractions around the community. Visiting the sites and experiencing what they have to offer really provides the staff with their own personal connection and understanding of the variety of activities there are to do in this region.
All of the sites visited on the FAM tour were very welcoming and ecstatic about the opportunity to showcase their business. They recognize the value of these tours and really provided our staff with some unforgettable memories.
This coming weekend our 2nd Woodstock Revival returns to kick off our summer music series with a 3-day festival. Doors open July 5th at 4:00 p.m. Fun for the whole family, the Woodstock Revival will be jammed packed with classic music, great food and drinks, contests and all the peace, love and happiness you can handle! Don’t miss it!
Here are some more of our summer concerts this summer.
