Below is a snapshot of what's happening in the coming week.


June 29 2019, 6:45 AM
Slay The Dragon Trail Run @ Silver Star Mountain Resort

No matter which distance you choose to run, it will include amazing trails, beautiful views and great summer temperatures escaping from the valley heat. This will be a great race to take part in and will be a great summer goal for some and an opportune training race for others. SilverStar is situated high enough to beat the summer heat, yet lower enough to not be totally covered by the remnants of winter. Building upon our successes from last year, we only plan to make this race bigger and better each year. Racers last year were stoked, smiles and cheers coming from all participants, if you haven't taken on the Dragon it's time!

Taking place on Canada Day weekend provides a long weekend to ensure you have time to spend with your family and friends and take in all the other activities that exist at SilverStar Mountain. For more information, visit the website provided.

Okanagan Screen Arts Society Presents: The White Crow @ The Vernon Towne Cinema

Director Ralph Fiennes captures the raw physicality and brilliance of Rudolf Nureyev, whose escape to the West stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. Nureyev is played by world-class ballet performer Oleg Ivenko.

With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet’s most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas led him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB.

David Hare’s drum-tight script offers a thrilling insight into his dangerous defection, masterminded by the dancer’s great friend, 21-year-old Parisian Clara Saint (Exarchopoulos). In an astonishing finale at Le Bourget airport in Paris, THE WHITE CROW leaps to freedom, and in so doing defines his destiny.

Director Ralph Fiennes captures the raw physicality and brilliance of Rudolf Nureyev, whose escape to the West stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. Nureyev is played by world-class ballet performer Oleg Ivenko.

With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet’s most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas led him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB.

David Hare’s drum-tight script offers a thrilling insight into his dangerous defection, masterminded by the dancer’s great friend, 21-year-old Parisian Clara Saint (Exarchopoulos). In an astonishing finale at Le Bourget airport in Paris, THE WHITE CROW leaps to freedom, and in so doing defines his destiny.

Showtimes; 5:15 and 7:45pm
