KAMLOOPS - There are all kinds of Christmas-themed craft fairs and other seasonal events in Kamloops this weekend.

The holiday season is quickly approaching so the Kamloops Wine Trail is hosting a holiday open house. On Saturday, Nov. 25 and Sunday, Nov. 26 you can taste some new wines, have some fun while stocking up on local favourites for your holiday entertaining or maybe even a gift or two. Festivities will take place at Harper’s Trail, Monte Creek Ranch and Privato Wineries.

You can also go to the DiVine Tours Sip Into the Season event which takes place on the Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. It costs $69 per person. For more information or to book your seats you can email info@divinetours.ca. Click the link to be redirected to their website.

The Kamloops School of the Arts is holding its annual craft fair and bake sale on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sagebrush Theater. More than 120 vendors have been booked so there should be something for everyone. There will be a concession, draws, a huge bake sale and a kid's craft corner. Admission is by donation. Check out their Facebook page for more information.

It's no problem if you can't make it downtown for the craft fair because another annual craft fair is taking place on Saturday at the Pacific Way Elementary School. There will be more than 65 vendors, which will include more than 40 original crafters, bakers or artisans in addition to a bake sale and a kid's activity corner. Don't forget to bring your camera for a chance to take a photo with Santa from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Photos are by donation to the Kamloops Leos. Admission to the event is free. More details can be found on the Facebook event page or email pacwaypac@gmail.com.

You can head downtown to watch the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday. The parade starts at 11 a.m. but you might want to get there a little early to find a good spot.

Saturday is opening day for the Woodward Christmas Tree Farm and they have joined forces with Privato Vineyard & Winery to help you can create family memories. The farm will be open daily from Saturday, Nov. 25 until Dec. 22, however, on the weekends you can do more than just pick up a tree, you can also enjoy a hay wagon ride, a concession filled with holiday goodies, and a crackling bonfire. This Saturday, Santa and his elves will be there for photos. For more information, click here.

If music isn't your thing you can always cheer on the Kamloops Blazers as they take on Medicine Hat at the Sandman Centre tomorrow, Nov. 24.
