An iconic B.C. tourist landmark is looking for help identifying the rioters that rolled the Peach concession into Okanagan Lake — not to reprimand but to take a selfie and have some closure.
Situated on Okanagan Lake Beach in Penticton, in 1991 the Peach concession was victim of rioters that swarmed the downtown area of Penticton and were funnelled down to the beach by tear gas and riot police. A crush of tourists filled the city for the provincially-sponsored Music 91 festival, headlined by MC Hammer, at the same time the Penticton Peach Festival was happening.
The concession was pushed onto its side on July 28, 1991 and rolled into Okanagan Lake, it was replaced by a sturdier version that now sits on Okanagan Lake Beach serving their famous crazy shakes and ice cream.
