The team will be popping up at events and high-traffic areas throughout the community including the Okanagan Rail Trail, parks and beaches, and more. Every Friday, our team will be manning an information tent (pictured above) at the Lake Country Farmers' Market, where a variety of retail products will also be available to purchase. For the first weekend of June, Calta and Jamie were also set up at Oyama Fun Day and rode their Pedego E-Bikes in the parade along the isthmus.
