The 2008 Center of Gravity will be held in Kelowna, BC on Aug 2nd – 3rd. It will be a festival style event that will showcase some of the world’s top freestyle mountain bikers and beach volleyball athletes. The agenda is packed with attractions for all ages including DJs, a Concert, Beer Gardens, Fashion Shows, the Flow Show, the Kids Zone, and an Exhibitors’ Village.
The two feature attractions are “Volleyfest”, which had its successful inauguration in 2007, and “Flirt’n with Dirt”. The event will provide great exposure to our top Canadian athletes and some local super stars in a fun interactive atmosphere that can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages. Beach volleyball has been the number one watched sport over the past 3 Olympic Games and we’re bringing it into the Okanagan with 24 men’s and women’s pairings battling it out in two world class double elimination tournaments. Flirt’n with Dirt will be hosting 10 of the world’s most extreme riders in the fastest growing adrenaline sport out there. They will be competing in a variety of competitions (i.e. Big Air, Best Trick, and Best Line) on a course built to entertain. You can find more info at centerofgravity.ca
