You’re guaranteed to get some beautiful pictures, and you can even bring a bouquet of tulips home for that special someone (or yourself, we won’t tell!)
On Sunday, get out of the city and head to the 130th Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair. Watch the rodeo, go on some amusement rides, and of course, eat some mini donuts!

Recover from yesterday’s wine tour and refuel your sore legs on Sunday morning with a lakeside brunch at the Hotel Eldorado
The view never gets old, hike up Knox Mountain with your four-legged friend for sweeping views of Kelowna. Stop at Paul’s Tomb or make it all the way to the top!
Stop in at BNA’s tasting room on your way back from Knox for happy hour. The best part: Their craft beer. The second best part: The tasting room is dog friendly and they even have homemade dog treats!
Turn off your phone, head to Round Table Board Gamerie, and enjoy some satisfying food and drinks while you play board games! It’s a great spot for Date Night or for a fun (and competitive) night with friends!
Stop in at Telegraph Tap House for Beerogies! Yes, you heard that right. Beer and perogies. We couldn’t come up with a better combination if we tried. Who ever thought of this truly deserves an award.
Take some time to just relax! Stop at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden on Monday and spend the afternoon enjoying some peace and quiet. On Monday you can also take part in the yukata dressing ceremony, take a tour of the garden, or have a 20 minute reflexology session!
