KAMLOOPS – It's almost Halloween, but you don't want to take part in all the creepy festivities taking place around the city. Don't worry, there's still lots to do for those less interested in costumes and pumpkins.
The Kamloops Symphony will be hosting One Vision – The Music of Queen at Sagebrush Theatre Friday and Saturday evening. The Jeans 'n Classics band will be led by singer Michael Shotton and backed by the orchestra and orchestra chorus in a tribute to Queen.
Also tonight is Great Big Sea at Interior Savings Centre. The boisterous men from Newfoundland are celebrating more than 20 years of music and a dozen albums together in the latest tour, which once again offers a traditional, quirky and proud tribute to life in the Maritimes as they travel across Canada and the United States.
Saturday morning head downtown for the final outdoor Saturday farmer's market of the season. You can pick up some squash and root vegetables or maybe some fresh baked goodies before the market heads indoors for the winter.
Have a business idea but not sure if it would be viable in Kamloops? The Chamber of Commerce is hosting a lunch seminar on Winning Ideas in Kamloops Saturday seminar and workshop with a special guest speaker.
