We decided to visit the historic O'Keefe Ranch "Victorian Christmas" event and were not disappointed.
The ranch is a "living museum" of sorts. A reminder of what Okanagan life was like for those living in a European settlement in the late 1800s.
At one time the ranch was at the end of the road, the wagon road that is. A self-contained community complete with a stagecoach depot, church, blacksmith and cemetery.
Many events, both public and private are held at the ranch. From weddings to high tea and much more.
For the Victorian Christmas at O'Keefe Ranch visitors can walk along the ranch's narrow roads that wind past the ranch's historic buildings and Christmas displays, the aroma of roasting chestnuts wafting in the air.
Travel back in time by entering the "General Store" or the pottery shop. There's even an impressive miniature train display in one of the ranch's buildings.
There is so much to see. Kids will love it!
The O'Keefe Ranch is pet-friendly. It's operated by the O’Keefe Ranch & Interior Heritage Society.
The event is free, but a donation is encouraged
