The Canadian Forces Snowbirds are set to perform during Peach Fest 2013 on Wednesday August 7. The 40 minute show is choreographed to music with the Snowbirds performing more than 50 different formations and manoeuvres, including thrilling solo passes, graceful nine-plane formations, and exciting rolls and loops.

Committee chair Fred Trainor was quoted as saying, “The return of the Snowbirds is welcome news to many residents and visitors to the South Okanagan during our biggest festival of the year. We will soon be announcing where and when the autograph signing session will be held with all the pilots on hand. Our committee has been working on this for some time now, and now it’s full speed ahead thanks to the generous support of Peters Brothers Construction!”.

The Canadian Forces Snowbird squadron has not performed in Penticton since 2008, though they did make a brief “fly by” in 2009 but due to the smoke in the valley from forest fires, they could not provide a full performance.

This year’s scheduled performance is Wednesday August 7th at 6 p.m.
