Hello August, goodbye August! It’s that time of year again where we must grab onto summer before it passes us all by!
With record breaking temperatures starting as early as June, the interior has been a destination hot spot for all things summer in 2015. What’s great is there’s still time to head to Kamloops for more awesome days in the Sun and a tonne of fantastic events planned for the rest of August and September. Book your room at The Thompson Hotel to be centrally located to all the wonderful city-wide events.
Take a stroll down to Riverside Park to catch some rays on the beach and let the kids run around in the water park. The park is only four blocks from our hotel, just the perfect walking distance to enjoy an ice cream from Scoopz Ice Cream Parlour along the way.
Travelling in a group? Load up your vehicles with your best tubes and floatation devices. Leave one vehicle at Pioneer Park and take one with you out to Valley View to join dozens of other floaters as they tube down the South Thompson River. Bring your sunscreen, snacks and drinking water as float trips can take hours depending on your departure location.
Don’t forget, all of July and August is Music in the Park, free outdoor concerts every night of the week.
Keep an eye out for more fun-filled events around town! To name a few:
What: Garden Gates 12th Annual Salsa Challenge (Free event – food, live music, prizes)
