If you spent any time on Twitter or Instagram during the weekend of May 23-25, you likely came across the hashtag #KelownaFBC. It was three days of the very best the city of Kelowna, British Columbia had to offer in all things food, drinks with a definitive local spin. We joined forces with Tourism Kelowna and with their guidance a culinary itinerary was created that left you both drooling and wishing you had brought your stretchy pants.

Micro Bites + Bar

Whether you make the four or so hour drive from Vancouver or fly in to the Kelowna International airport, we learned that a weekend of indulgences is easily within anyone's grasp. Add in the constant view of mountains and water and it all made for an unforgettable weekend. The bloggers who were a part of KelownaFBC wrote at length about their experiences and there's still a few more posts on the way. Below are the posts and it's very interesting to see the approach of how each blogger interpreted the same trip.

It was a pleasure putting this incredible trip together with Tourism Kelowna. And on that note, happy reading and cheers from Kelowna, British Columbia.
