Fall is officially upon us! With this comes many things: sweater weather, pumpkins, falling leaves, and, most importantly, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a great time to spend with friends and family. With the pandemic still affecting everything in our lives, it’s hard to know how best to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. So, we here at Downtown Kamloops thought we would put together a list of 3 ways you can safely celebrate this Thanksgiving.

Picnic in the park (with food from Salty Fig Catering Co.!)

Salty Fig Catering Company is offering a special Thanksgiving meal this year. Their full meal includes and artisanal turkey sandwich, a fall harvest salad, and a pumpkin cookie. The meal can be pre-ordered by calling (604) 290-4237 and can be picked up on Friday, October 9th at their 1428 Lorne Street Location between 11 and 1:30.

Once you have your food, you can eat it wherever you want. But, we here at Downtown Kamloops recommend a socially distanced picnic at Riverside Park.

A scenic walk through Downtown Kamloops

Though, many stores will be closed for the holiday, there’s still plenty to see in Downtown Kamloops this holiday weekend. The fall colours are lovely downtown, and what better way to spend socially distanced time with your family than to go for a walk?

Thanksgiving dinner at Cordo Resto & Bar

Cordo Resto & Bar has a very special Thanksgiving dinner this year. They are offering a three-course meal for $35, just the main course turkey dinner for $25, or a children’s turkey dinner with pie for $16. For a starter, they are offering either a delicious butternut squash and apple soup or a beet and quinoa salad. For their main course, they have roasted smoked turkey, chorizo sausage stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes and pan gravy, house-made cranberry compote, and local farm vegetables. For dessert they have, of course, freshly baked pumpkin pie and whipped cream.

This meal is available Sunday, October 11th and Monday, October 12th by reservation. Book your table at cordorestobar.com or by phoning (778) 471-8035.
