Sun Peaks hosts Canada’s Alpine Blossom Festival

Kids' sensation The Doodlebops join Canada's Alpine Blossom Festival line-up at Sun Peaks for a spectacular August long weekend

During the summer season that brings warm weather, sunny skies and Sun Peaks’ beautiful alpine flowers, family getaways become the cornerstone in creating lasting memories. This August long weekend (August 1 to 3) not only will there be an abundance of picturesque alpine wildflowers blossoming on Tod Mountain accessible via the Sunburst chairlift, but the village will also be hosting children’s television celebrities, The Doodlebops. The Doodlebops Musical Playdate, featuring rock stars DeeDee, Rooney and Moe, entertain live audiences around the globe. Taking the stage on Saturday, August 2 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., the wacky trio, who depict animation brought to life, will engage adults and children alike in song and dance.

“Sun Peaks is known in many parts of the world as a family friendly winter ski resort,” explains Tourism Sun Peaks President, Christopher Nicolson.  “This is the first time we have brought celebrity status children’s entertainers into our summer event schedule as part of the overall 2014 Summer Concert Series.”

Along with The Doodlebops, Sun Peaks will be alive with street theatre acts such as the high-energy, comical antics of Stories on Wheels and the magical entertainment of The Trollsons. Enjoy the music of self-taught, award winning musical artist Shane Philip, as he performs throughout the weekend. On Saturday evening families can enjoy a movie under the stars as Disneynature's Bears is featured on FreshAirCinema's outdoor screen.

“We hope the invigorating children’s program will further enhance the experience for families.  We are looking forward to seeing the unbridled enthusiasm and excitement of the young audiences,” says Nicolson.

Traditional Canada's Alpine Blossom Festival favourites will still be featured, including an opportunity to hike with Canadian Senator and Olympic champion Nancy Greene Raine during the “Reach the Peak” Tod Mountain Summit hike on Saturday. Capturing family memories will be made easy with an alpine portrait shoot by local photographers from Alpine Images, while wildflower photography workshops lead by Kelly Funk and Gemma Harris will demystify key elements of amateur photography.
