What’s Happening in Kamloops for BC Family Day Long Weekend!

Here’s a list of what’s going on for BC Family Day long weekend in Kamloops:

5th Annual Family Day Festival

On Family Day, the City of Kamloops will transform the unnamedTournament Capital Centre (TCC) into a festival for families with children of all ages! The 5th Annual Family Day Festival will take place on Monday, February 13 (a statutory holiday in BC), from 10 am – 2 pm, and the event is free. We will also host a free swim at the TCC from 1 pm – 4 pm.

Community organizations and businesses will bring a wide range of family-focused festivities into one place. Festival goers will have an opportunity to join a princess tea party, get creative with arts and crafts, have their faces painted, experience live performances, learn about all things science, practice karate, and try new sports. With close to 50 booths and activities, there will be something for everyone.

In addition to music, games, sports, and crafts, there will be opportunities to win great prizes. Families can pick up “experience passports” at the door and all completed passports will be entered in a draw to win an Annual Family Pass to the Wildlife Park.

In addition, the City of Kamloops booth will have a draw to win a six month full facility pass to the TCC and there will be a chance to win more prizes: Wildlife Park passes, family memberships to the Kamloops Art Gallery, skate passes, swim passes, and City of Kamloops swag. If that wasn’t enough, in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, the 150th person to walk through the door at the TCC will win some great Canada 150 merchandise!

The Kamloops Food Bank will be accepting donations for non-perishable food items at the door.

We invite you to celebrate your family with us! See you at the    TCC (910 McGill Road) on Monday February 13th.
