KAMLOOPS - Shockingly there are lots of Halloween events this weekend.

Luminocity starts tonight, Oct. 28., and among the opening day activities is the kickoff for Auxillary Glow. The Rotary Bandshell at Riverside Park will be transformed into Auxiliary Glow, with lights, shadows and video effects. Inside the shell, bands will also be playing, with the Kamloops-based alternative country group Gleneagles the first band up, followed by Maki. Tomorrow a second night of music will feature Wormhole, Songs from the Black Lodge and Koban.

If you’re out shopping downtown tomorrow and you here more moaning than expected, it may be a herd of walkers as the Kamloops Zombie Walk trundles through town from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. On the upside it’s a community event, so cricket bats and crossbows won’t be needed.

For kids there’s a chance to play the mad scientist at the the Big Little Science Centre. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday the centre will be hosting Gross Science. Along with the 140 exhibits, there’ll be the chance to test out the sense of touch while trying to figure out if that’s an eyeball you’re holding.

If animals are preferable to science, Boo at the Zoo is happening at the B.C. Wildlife Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly. It’s $12 for adults and $8 for children ages 3 to 17 to experience the zoo with a haunted maze and family friendly activities.

If you don’t have kids or were able to find a babysitter on a Saturday night, Monte Creek Ranch Winery has Wines and Screams with a haunted tour of the vineyard. Because drinking and driving is a terrible thing to do, they’re offering transportation to and from the Fox N’ Hounds Pub. Tickets are $50 and include wine and appetizers.

Weather this weekend is predicted to be appropriately gloomy.
