Hockey in Kamloops
The official season of Canada’s favorite pastime is here! In Canada and nations around the globe, there are events that really bring the community together. For most Canadians, hockey is one of those events! Hockey games in Canada are the type of magical event that nearly everyone can enjoy. The game brings people together as a community and as a family. Hockey is something that people associate with being Canadian! And we’re kicking off the season for hockey in Kamloops.
Kamloopsians can enjoy this feeling now that the 2018/2019 season of the Kamloops Blazers and Kamloops Storm is finally underway! Throughout the months of October to March you can catch one of their many home games at the Sandman Centre or Memorial Arena – Why not spend some time enjoying what Downtown Kamloops has to offer before and after the game! We have a great array of eateries, entertainment options, beautiful tree-lined streets and more.
Have you ever seen the ads for businesses that say: “Sorry we’re closed and at the Game!”? Signs like these can be found in a few downtown windows on game night (like CIBC for example) and they showcase the community support for our local WHL team, the Kamloops Blazers.
There’s nothing better than sitting with friends while roaring the National Anthem and cheering for your local team! We encourage everyone to take the time this season to spend at one of the local rinks – it’s something truly special. The next time you have an evening free or are planning your next date night, take a look at the Blazers and Storm schedules and enjoy the classic pastime that brings Canadians together.
