Kelowna MNP Canada Games Torch Relay Stop
The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay is a significant element of the Canada Games and has united communities across the nation for the past 51 years. It will officially start in Ottawa from the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill and will visit 48 communities across Canada before arriving in Red Deer for the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Games.
Kelowna, it's your time to feel the spirit of the games. Come out and celebrate as the torchbearers relay though your community!
Be a part of history and celebrate the historic MNP Canada Games Torch Relay as it winds through downtown Kelowna on Friday, November 30, 2018. Starting at 3:30, cheer on local athletes and prominent community members as they proudly carry the Canada Games Torch from Stuart Park, up Bernard Avenue, and back along Ellis Street and then promenade back to Stuart Park. There will be loads of fun at the park from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Not only can you enjoy hot chocolate and snacks, fun games, including HockeyShot, prizes, and a photo booth – it’s opening day for the outdoor skating rink!
