The fun kicks off Friday evening (July 20) when Bull Riding in the Rockies returns.

This annual event features a cowboy dinner, auction, bull riding and a dance on the corner of 13th and 4th Avenue.  Call 250-342-6908 or visit www.columbiavalleysummerlude.com for more information.

Lions Club member Leo Kienitz prepares to deliver another round of pancakes during last year's Valley Appreciation Day.

Saturday, July 21 promises to be a rollicking day as Valley Appreciation Day (VAD) returns for another year.

The downtown event begins in the morning with a service club pancake breakfast followed by a vast array of vendors and information booths, games, live entertainment and more.

The breakfast begins at 9 a.m. and VAD runs until 1 p.m.

Also on Saturday is the Lake Windermere Regatta, from noon until 4 p.m., at Kinsmen Beach.

The regatta features races showcasing skills at sailing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking. A note to sailors: You must pre-register and bring your own boat the day of the event.
In addition, there are other competitions such as a beach volleyball tournament and a sand art contest.
There is a ‘Love Your Lake’ photo contest (submit your photos today) and Lake Smarts: test your knowledge about Lake Windermere at the Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ Lake Smart tent.

Prizes will be awarded for all events, and enter to win a grand prize!

All activities are free, and everyone is encouraged to join in!
