    Once that crisp air creeps into October, the city of Vernon warms up to autumn in a big way. The month-long celebration fills up the calendar with a pumpkin festival, corn mazes, spooky Halloween fun and a chance to watch the salmon spawn from the seat of a canoe.

    There's no festival in Canada as large and great as the Funtastic Sport and Music Festival. Since 1985, Vernon, B.C. is visited by people from all over the country to play in the Slo-pitch tournament on the July long-weekend. People also come for the three nights of live classic rock entertainment.

  • This year's event is the weekend of Aug. 30 to 31 at Kalamalka Lake, that shimmering green-watered beauty that runs between the towns of Oyama and Coldstream, close to Vernon.

  • We were cruising the Vernon Farmers Market, strolling the rows of fresh produce found this time of year in the Okanagan. Everything smelled fresh. The bunch of carrots were bought and instantly reduced to ferns.
