It's one thing to hike the beautiful trails of Sun Peaks, but come mid-summer the experience is elevated to a whole new level. That's when alpine wildflowers reach full bloom and decorate the mountains in a beautiful carpet of bold colours. It's something to celebrate and Sun Peaks does this in a fitting celebration during the B.C. Day long weekend. Tweet this page.

The village gets into the festival spirit with live performances, a kids' zone with games, face painting and bouncy castle and an outdoor evening movie. It's a great way for families to spend the weekend in the sun and take time to stop and smell the flowers.
