Penticton Peach Festival has announced that B.C.’s own award-winning children’s entertainer Charlotte Diamond will be the headline act for children’s day at the annual festival.
This year’s festival runs from Aug. 3-7, with Kiddies Day on the final Sunday.
The day begins with the Kiddies Day Parade, a smaller version of the festival’s grande parade. Children up to age 12 are encouraged to create colourful costumes for themselves, their tricycles, bicycles and wagons and parade from the city centre parking lot to Okanagan Lake Park, where prizes will be given out for best costumes in the different age groups.
Following that parade, Diamond takes to the main stage in Okanagan Lake Park, with new songs and dances for her fans, as well as favourites like I am a Pizza and Four Hugs a Day.
