Summer Vacation Essentials

It's about halfway through summer and I have been counting down the months, weeks and days until my mini summer vacation. Every year I try to get out of Vancouver and head back to my hometown of Summerland. I always try to spend at least four days in the Okanagan to enjoy the sun, visit family and friends and try out the abundance of wineries in the area. 

This year I have planned my trip on a long weekend to involve attending Boonstock music festival. There are some extremely talented artists from different genres performing (from City and Colour to Armin Van Burren). I am so excited for this festival as Penticton has never hosted an event like this before.

With the many activities the Okanagan has to offer, I have put together my essential items for wine tours, beach days, day time festival look and night time festival look.
