What a glorious weekend of sunshine and celebration to welcome summer to a full Veranda Beach cottages resort on Lake Osoyoos! Packed with both Canadians and Americans, the Resort celebrated both national birthdays with flags a flying!
Getting ready for the Celebrations!
Canada Day on July 1st kicked off with face painting and tatoos to decorate everyone for the festivities, followed by a British Columbia Salmon BBQ, “North Half” Rock and Roll band on the Boardwalk and finished with many Veranda Beach guests watching Canada’s second largest Fireworks show from the water in Osoyoos. Fireworks by boat is simply an amazing experience.
Prince's Grilling Competition at Veranda Beach
Saturday, there was a grilling competition on the Veranda Beach boardwalk with four competitors preparing some awesome Kabobs for the judges and Veranda Beach guests taste tasting! Saturday night, 70+ kids of all ages watched an outdoor movie on the Village Green.
Independence Day at Veranda Beach
Independence Day on July 4th was celebrated in similar fashion with a Beach Party, great music on the Beach including the American national anthem, a Beach BBQ for 150 and then not to be outdone by the Canadians an amazing fireworks show all around Lake Osoyoos.
All in all a fantastic start to the summer. Kudos to the entire Veranda Beach Crew for putting on an awesome show!
