KAMLOOPS -  It's almost Thanksgiving, and for the crew at the B.C. Wildlife Park in Kamloops, that means it's time to celebrate.

On Monday, Oct. 8 from 9:30 to 5 p.m., staff will be hosting a one-day event to celebrate the turkey holiday and then are inviting guests to head over to the Shuswap to watch the salmon run in the Adams River.

This year's event at the Kamloops wildlife park includes a pie baking competition, traditional Indigenous drumming, singing and several interpretive animal talks.

"This is a dominant year for the salmon run, so we are inviting people to come to the event in the morning and then head to the Adams River," B.C. Wildlife Marketing and Events Manager Julie Ratcliffe says.

In the past, there has been a cash donation admission fee but this year will be free of charge.

"TD (bank) approached us and said they wanted to sponsor us so now they are covering all costs," Ratcliffe says. "It's free admission but donations are still welcome."

For more information on the activities taking place for the TD Thanks Kamloops by going 'Wild on Thanksgiving' go here.

Some activities are limited to a certain amount of people or require a fee.
