Get Ready for your Housewarming Party in the PNE Prize Home

Stressing over welcoming guests to your home is a thing of the past!
With the amount of open space on the main level of this year’s Prize Home, you can entertain and celebrate with more than just a few guests. Whether it’s for the holidays or your highly-anticipated housewarming party, the 2019 PNE Prize Home will not disappoint.

They say first impressions are the most lasting and we are glad this is the case. Be proud to welcome your guests through the large foyer and into the dining room, living room and kitchen.

Start them off with a glass of wine in the dining room as they enjoy your view of Kelowna’s scenic Lake Okanagan. Escort them to the dining nook or the dining table so you can shed some light on the night’s menu and on some of your latest recipes.

The open-concept kitchen with KitchenAid Appliances supplied by Coast Appliances, and dining room make it easy to interact with your guests and keep them entertained throughout the evening. You can also keep the main kitchen clean by making dinner in the prep kitchen!

 

When the party becomes too loud, withdraw to this serene tea room for a change in ambience. Large windows fill the room with warm sunlight that bounces off the lively wallpaper, and accent chairs from Yaletown Interiors – making you feel inspired and refreshed. So go on and sip on your favourite cup of tea (or glass of wine) and catch up with some family and friends.

There is so much room for activities here in the PNE Prize Home! Come see for yourself at one of our hosted tours in person or virtually (on our website)!

Remember, this home could be yours! Visit pneprizehome.ca to purchase your lucky ticket now!

Here’s what you need to know about Playland Nights

It’s time to party the night away at Playland.

Friday nights are about going out, having a few drinks, and catching up with friends. Luckily, Playland Nights can tick all those checkboxes and add in the exhilarating rides too. Whether this is your first time experiencing Playland Nights or you’ve been a fan for three years, here’s what you need to know (and won’t want to miss):

  1. The Rides

We kicked out the kids but left the rides. Starting at 7pm every Friday night in July, Playland is open to adults only! This year, we are featuring the all-new Sea to Sky Swinger – perfectly designed to showcase the best of Vancouver’s landscape with its glittering lights at night. Your Playland Nights ticket gives you access to the park’s favourite rides, but if you’re looking to skip the line, you’re in luck! The Wonderlust VIP pass lets you do just that! It also gives you access to a VIP bar and rapid access to eight of our most popular rides.

  1. The Drinks

During Playland Nights, the grounds are fully licensed. This means you get to enjoy your favourite beverage (adult or not) throughout the park while checking out all the entertainment we have to offer. We have the craft beer fans and oenophiles covered. And if you’re looking for other exciting options – this year’s cocktails are both tasty and picture-worthy. Try the all-new Playland-inspired Dry Ice cocktail, the Tipsy Unicorn, and Tito’s handmade vodka drink – a combination of Tito’s Very Berry lemonade, Jalapeno lemonade and Canadian Mule. Let’s cheers to that!

  1. The Entertainment

There won’t be a lack of entertainment with the drums, samba, burlesque show and more! When it’s time to get the party started, we have Drum N Dirty with upbeat remixed party music. Wes Barker, the Stunt Magician, will also join the party and bring his famous magic shows and illusions as seen on America’s Got Talent. Get ready to be a part of this incredible entertainment roster that will rival even the best Friday night club scene!

  1. The Food

Playland is where it’s at with all the delicious finger foods and festival favourites. We have all the mini donuts and hot dogs ready when you are! Did we mention we have totchos? Yeah, that’s right. That’s tater tots with taco toppings.

  1. The (VIP) Experience

All new this year! The Wonderlust VIP Experience brings you on an exclusive magical journey, with different theme nights to choose from. Dress up to the themes and enjoy the exclusivities of a true VIP – including a secret VIP homebase lounge and park-wide riddles to be a part of. Psst, it’s like your own budge pass!

 

Playland Nights is where the party is at this Friday, and every Friday in July. It’s a classic summer night event that you won’t want to miss. So grab your friends and cheers to the drinks, ‘cause we’re about to party the night away.

 

Save on tickets and get them now at pne.ca/playland-nights to spare some $ for the drinks!

A Masterclass in Luxury

 

What makes a house feel like home for you? Is it the comfort of a familiar bed that you fall in love with every night? Is it the unique aroma of fresh laundry that puts you at ease, the warmth of soaking in a large bathtub, or the conveniences that usually only royals have?

When it comes to the PNE Prize Home, the king/queen of the castle gets to sleep in the largest room, unwind in a grand ensuite and reap the luxurious benefits of a beautifully laid-out walk-in closet. All these features may feel like a fantasy but can become the heaven on earth experience for the eventual Master of the 2019 PNE Prize Home.

The key to a good night’s sleep is a large, comfortable bed. This king-sized bed from Yaletown Interiors features soft and airy memory foam that provides cooling and supportive comfort, surrounding you regardless of your sleeping positions and ensuring that you’re on cloud nine until you wake. The upholstered headboard and dove white nightstands add a personal touch to the master bedroom, keeping you feeling extra cozy. Getting up also gets a whole lot easier when you get to wake up to the scenic Kirschner Mountain landscape right outside your bedroom balcony.

 

When it comes to a relaxing pampering session, nothing beats spending some time in a warm bath on a cool day. The master bathroom is highlighted by a minimal but timeless design, and features a pearly white grand bathtub. The dual sinks set in marbled countertops mean there’s room for both of you to get ready for the day (or sleep) at the same time.

 

Somehow we always run out of space in our closets. With this enormous walk-in closet, you’ll be clutter free with plenty of space to hang up all your favourite garments (or tuck away those that spark a little less joy). The closet also has an island for preparing outfits, vanity, plus display/storage shelves for your prized purses and shoes.

The placement of the laundry room is something we never knew we needed in our home. With entrances off the master closet and second floor hallway, the laundry room – outfitted with the Whirlpool washer and dryer from Coast Appliances – is conveniently situated, so you can easily drop off dirty clothes, or move clean garments back into your closet.

Take a look and experience the home for yourself with the virtual tour found at the PNE Prize Home website.

Stay tuned to see what the rest of this luxurious Prize Home has to offer. This home can be yours – visit pneprizehome.ca to purchase your lucky ticket now!
