Locals get to see the award-winning float in person when Peach Fest makes its much-anticipated return in August along with the Grand Parade that takes place on Saturday, Aug. 6.

The parade starts at 10 a.m. on Main Street and Eckhart Avenue. The Peach Fest parade is the largest in the B.C. Interior.

Floats from across B.C. and Washington State, marching bands, dancers, gymnasts, musicians, clubs, associations and clowns will delight the crowds.

The Penticton Peach Festival is set to return for five full days packed with entertainment and attractions, including the crowning of the new Miss Penticton before the Grand Parade.

Penticton Peach Festival began in 1947, to celebrate the peach harvest in Penticton. This year is expected to be the biggest yet from Aug. 3 to 7.
