Just in time for the Canada Day long weekend, a popular North Okanagan beach has reopened to the public.

On Thursday, the city of Vernon said the water quality advisory for Kin Beach had been lifted and the beach had reopened.

The beach was closed for five days from Monday June 25 due to higher bacteria counts than allowed.

Signs were posted along the beach, advising the public that swimming was not recommended.
