Spring is FINALLY in the air and Kamloops is a buzz with activities to suit everyone’s tastes and budget!
The Easter Bunny is busy in and around Kamloops!
Start off April with a little Easter fun at the Easter Egg-Citement event at our local BC Wildlife Park. Children (and adults alike) can enjoy coming face to face with numerous British Columbia wildlife including Moose, Elk, Grizzly Bears, Burrowing Owls and more! Over the Easter weekend, the park transforms into a fun-filled chocolate extravaganza with children’s easter egg hunts, scavenger hunts and of course…entertainment by our local celebrity clown, Uncle Chris the Clown! Looking for a unique egg-finding experience? Why not try out Sun Peak’s Resort Easter Extravaganza and join Harry the Bear and the Easter Bunny skiing the slopes to find hidden eggs among the run-side!
On-stage and static displays
April welcomes a number of on-stage performances to Kamloops including the 20th Anniversary show of Riverdance, Vegas-style entertainers The Illusionists, your chance to get on stage and win prizes at the Price is Right Live!, numerous Western Canada Theatre plays, a symphonic performance by the Kamloops Symphony and a revival performance by 1970’s rock’n’roll band…The Stampeder’s!
Enjoy a morning, afternoon or full day downtown Kamloops exploring our many boutique shops and take-in artistic displays at the Kamloops Art Gallery – aptly located adjacent to Hotel 540.
Not quite ready for winter to be over?
There is still plenty of snow in the surrounding mountaintops for adventure-seekers to enjoy! Ski, ride, tube, snowshoe and enjoy all sorts of snow fun up at Sun Peaks Resort or Harper Mountains. From end of season festivals, concerts and silly skiing events, both have a number of fun-filled, family activities to take part in or enjoy spectating.
Roof-top Pool Oasis and Covered Hot Tub
No matter the weather, enjoy Hotel 540’s rooftop outdoor pool oasis and covered hot tub overlooking the heart of downtown Kamloops. Our seasonal roof-top garden will be in the early planning and planting stages nearing the end of the month and sure to be a show-stopper again this year in producing fresh, local ingredients for our in-house restaurant – blue Dining + Lounge.
Be sure to make Hotel 540 your home base for all of your April adventures while visiting Kamloops!
