KAMLOOPS - This weekend it’ll be a good chance to explore nature and science with the little ones or head out for some music.

Running all weekend — from Saturday, May 20, to Monday, May 22 — will be the B.C. Wildlife Park’s Victoria Day Weekend events. Wildlife expert Safari Jeff will be on stage twice a day with reptiles from around the world to show off, but if mammals are more your thing encounters will be happening with the grizzly bears, bobcat, moose and more. More family friendly activities will be on hand as well, like bouncy inflatables and face painting. Click here for schedules and ticket costs.

Saturday the Big Little Science Centre is running activities as well, this time based around water. Topics ranging from floods — which seems relevant right now — to whirlpools will be discussed, and there’ll be more hands on things, like taste tests or the differences between hot and cold water. Tickets are $6 for adults, $3 for kids, free for anyone under the age of 5 and $15 for a family. Click here for more information.

If you’re looking for something a little more adult, Red Collar Brewing at 355 Lansdowne St. is holding a barbecue Saturday afternoon. They’ll be tapping a couple special casks and making some homemade burgers. This is the first time they’re doing it, but expect it to happen more regularly this summer. The special casks get rolled out between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Pogue Mahone pub is hosting a concert Saturday night with a pair of B.C. singer-songwriters. Kamloops’s Lindsay May will be opening for Adam Charles Wilson of Vancouver. Cover is $5 and things get under way around 8 p.m.

Sunday night another Vancouverite will be coming up to play as Daniel Wesley does a short loop of western Canada. He’ll be playing at the Blue Grotto. Tickets are $15 for the show which starts around 9 p.m.
