It’s not difficult to imagine what heaven would be like after glimpsing a scenic view of the South Okanagan’s vast panorama, and there is no better way to enjoy its majesty than at the very heart.  With the absolute best location in the valley bar none, The Penticton Lakeside Resort & Casino caters to a myriad of tastes, choices, and preferences, assured to labor an experience truly worth remembering.  Situated at the culture hub of the city, our full service resort not only offers the best views and a variety of assorted venues, but also assists in the convenience of its central location. Hugging two spectacular lakeside parks, we are just a stone’s throw away from the Penticton’s Farmer’s Market, a weekly Saturday morning affair, as well as all the latest seasonal events compiling a chock-full summer calendar.  This weekend, we are excited to commemorate one of the best, most anticipated summer kick-off events in the valley, Canada’s premier family oriented road, antique and classic car show!  Peach City Beach Cruise has proven itself year after year as the ultimate family weekend.  Come and peruse the incredible spectacle of exclusive eclectic car collections along Lakeshore Drive.  Featured live entertainers hailing from a musical trifecta of country, rock and blues will pair the event, along with dancing, vendors and other outdoor attractions.  Admire antique stationary engines and tractors, motorcycles, and 700+ contemporary, antique, and one-of-a-kind collections, before cooling off with a refreshing drink or two at the Barking Parrot lakeside patio.  Watch the sun set while twirling a delicious string of fettuccini singing in our rich homemade Alfredo, at the Bufflehead Tapas and Pasta Room, or enjoy a succulent steak dinner at the Hooded Merganser, both overlooking Okanagan Lake.  With field to table fresh organics supplied by our very own, Valleyview Farm, our menus are will inspire.  This weekend, we celebrate the start of summer, with a little something special for everyone to enjoy!  To find out more about tickets, event details and schedules, please visit the following website:
