Imagine: brilliant golden sunshine, a lingering day stretching into twilight, the clinking of cold drinks, chilled white wine and fresh fruit, the crunch of something delicious, the sweet smell of summer grilling, short sleeve shirts and sandals, an unparalleled panoramic view of Lake Okanagan and one of the most breathtaking, sensational places in the world… What better way to spend a dazzling warm summer weekend, then right here at the Penticton Lakeside Resort & Casino! With the absolute best location in the Okanagan bar none, take your pick from any of our three remarkable patio locations at The Barking Parrot Bar, The Hooded Merganser Restaurant, and The Bufflehead Pasta and Tapas Room. Situated in the heart of Penticton’s cultural centre, we are right smack dab in the middle of all the action and adjacent to two of the best summer kick-off events in the valley: Canada’s premier family oriented road, antique and classic car show – The Penticton Peach City Beach Cruise, and one of the largest Elvis Festivals in Canada – the 10th Annual Penticton Elvis Festival.

Stop by and have a midday snack and cold refreshing drink out on the Barking Parrot Patio while continuing on with an eventful day. Enjoy a beautiful night out on the town, with dinner at The Bufflehead Tapas and Pasta Room, prior to catching one of the live outdoor entertainment shows by one of the many Elvis tribute artists from around the world, including Shawn Klush, the world’s first “Ultimate Elvis Champion,” who has been busy touring worldwide to sold out shows.
