KAMLOOPS - It's time once more for fans of the B.C. Lions to head out to Hillside Stadium for a special day that's all about them.

The City of Kamloops and B.C. Lions are holding Fanfest again, from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 8. The team will host a practice and clinic, encouraging fans to take advantage of an opportunity for an up-close look. They'll also be ready to sign autographs and answer questions. For kids there'll be face-painting, inflatable games and prizes.

As well, the Lions have set up two public night practices for fans to enjoy, Friday, June 6 and Sunday June 15. Each practice starts at 7 p.m.

The B.C. Lions Football Club has five Grey Cup titles: 1964, 1985, 1994, 2000, 2006 and 2011. 

The rookie camp started Thursday, May 29 even though the team is still without a contract agreement. The CFL is currently in labour talks with the CFL Player's Association.
