Sharpen up your business skills, the Dragons are coming back to Kelowna.

The CBC TV show featuring aspiring entrepreneurs pitching their ideas will hold auditions in Kelowna on March 8 as part of a cross Canada tour.

Kelowna is the only Okanagan Valley city where producers will look for new business ideas that may catch their eye and make it onto the small screen next season on CBC.
