Kelowna and Area (continued)
Prospera Place, home of the Kelowna Rockets and many concerts.
The Kelowna Rockets are the local hockey team, they play in the Western Hockey League and have been very successful. Kelowna went to three straight Memorial Cup tournaments in the years 2003, 2004 and 2005. They won the Memorial Cup for the first time in franchise history in 2004, coincidentally the same year they were selected to host the event.
In May 2005, Kelowna celebrated its Centennial, marking 100 years as a city. While Kelowna started as a small agricultural community, focusing on cattle and fruit the opening of the floating bridge across Okanagan Lake in 1958 paved the way for expansion of Kelowna. By 2000 the bridge was a traffic bottleneck for the growing city. The William R. Bennett Bridge replaced the three-lane Okanagan Lake Bridge in 2008.
