There's a whole lot of talent in and around the Okanagan Valley, and they're all invited to show off their singing skills at Osoyoos Idol Karaoke Fundraising Competition. In August, this karaoke competition returns to the Gyro Park bandshell, inviting residents and visitors for an evening of musical entertainment. While you're in town, take advantage of the spectacular views and deluxe accommodations of Walnut Beach Resort.
This annual event gives area performers and everymen a chance to be discovered – or to at least win some cool prizes. Participants have the chance to win from more than $1,500 in winnings, including gift baskets and restaurant gift cards. One first-prize winner gets a three-hour recording session at Master Factory Studio. The lineup of judges features a few local celebrities, like Osoyoos Coyotes hockey team owner Randy Bedard and disc jockey Brock Jackson. Along with karaoke performances, there will be live entertainment by seasoned musicians, including classic rockers XLR8ER.
Whether you're performing or just spectating, this event has the makings of an enjoyable getaway to Osoyoos. And with one of the carefully crafted designer suites at Walnut Beach Resort, you can kick back and relax all weekend long.
