The city’s annual Family Day Festival will return to the Tournament Capital Centre this Monday, the first year in which the annual holiday will align in British Columbia with other provinces in Canada.
Last year, the provincial government announced the change, to be implemented in 2019.
Kamloops residents can celebrate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., when the TCC will feature free activities for kids of all ages.
Face-painting, live performances, science experiments, sports and music will be included, while food vendors will be on site to satisfy appetites between recreation and entertainment.
While the event is free, the Kamloops Food Bank will be on hand to collect non-perishable food items.
In addition to the festival, the city is offering $2 skating sessions at Sandman Centre (hockey from 10 a.m. to noon) and Memorial Arena (public skating from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.) and a $2 swimming session at the TCC’s Canada Games Aquatic Centre (from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.).
