KAMLOOPS - With the arrival of autumn come fall-themed weekend events in Kamloops.

The Fall Home Show is taking over the Sandman Arena. The show is running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16 with free admission both days. Vendors will include furniture merchants, renovation services and technology, including a futuristic home display.

At the same time Heritage Days will be taking place at Tranquille Farm on Saturday and Sunday. The farm, at 4600 Tranquille Road, is hosting a variety of fall and harvest activities, including a pumpkin patch, tractor pull and corn maze. On Saturday a pumpkin gun will be in action, and both days a 90-year-old thresher and saw mill will be active. It’s free to go, though some activities will have a cost, including the corn maze.

Saturday evening will be busy as well, with lots of options.

For fans of the T.V. show Supernatural, improv group the Freudian Slips take the stage at the Stage House Theatre at 422 Tranquille Road. Audience participation and comedy are on the playbill, with doors opening at 7:30 and show starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Meanwhile, up at the Kamloops Coast Hotel Oktoberfest will take the floor Saturday at 5 p.m. The fifth annual event is a fundraiser put on by the Sun Peaks racers and will include baked goods from The Crazy and The German Bakery and a special batch of beer from Red Collar Brewery. The event is nearly sold out, with only a couple tickets available at $85.

Art in the Dark is also Saturday night, with interactive art, live performances, body art and dance. This is the second year for the event, which may become an annual event. This year’s night will take place at Unit 211 in the Lansdowne Village shopping complex. Tickets are $40 for the public, or $30 for students or Kamloops Arts Council members. All proceeds go to the arts council’s programming.
