“The City is excited to partner with the Penticton Peach Festival board of directors to host a Mini-Peach celebration this August. Peach Festival’s presence has been the cornerstone of summer in Penticton for over 70 years, and this year’s Mini-Peach is a fantastic way to start to bring our community back together in celebration.”
