KAMLOOPS - If you’re basking in an extra long-holiday vacation or are looking to keep the kids entertained during winter break, there are activities to enjoy beyond snacking in front of the TV or last-minute Christmas shopping.

From Christmas Eve to New Years’ Eve, the Sagebrush Theatre will host Beauty and the Beast, the Panto — an interactive performance put on by the Laughing Stock Theatre Society for the whole family. There will be candy handouts.

Check out a local hockey game during the holiday break.  The Kamloops Storm will be playing at the McArthur Island Sportsplex on Dec. 19 and the Kamloops Blazers will host games at the Sandman Centre on Dec. 27, Dec. 30, Jan. 1 and Jan. 2.

Up until Jan. 3, the Wildlife Park will host its 18th annual wildlights festival each night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with several features such as a holiday maze, story time, entertainment from Uncle Chris the Clown and more. Storytime will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 18 to 20, 22 and 23.

Take the kids up to Sun Peaks for a glowstick parade on New Years’ Eve. The event will feature a big air demonstration from skilled skiers, a torchlight parade and the evening will cap off with fireworks.

If you're looking for a fun and free activity, check out some of the best sledding and skating spots scoped out in the city. Or if you're more interested in getting out but keeping warm, consider packing a travel mug of hot chocolate and driving to the houses with the best Christmas lights. Don't worry about where to go, we've got you covered with a map and a llst of the best-lit streets in town.
