Join thousands of participants in Kamloops’ largest celebration of movement, Boogie the Bridge. Starting around 9:00 am at the 200 block of Victoria Street, this race is all about personal achievement, empowerment, and fun.

Along the way, enjoy dozens of bands and cheering stations and watch out for the inspirational chalk messaging. It’s a great event to spend time with family and friends while supporting the community and embracing a healthier lifestyle.

Western Canada Theatre Performances

Throughout April, the Western Canada Theatre will present two captivating performances that will keep you on the edge of your seats.

Jesus Christ Superstar (April 4 to April 20): Experience a story of passion, faith, and betrayal with this dynamic retelling of the last week of Jesus’ life that incorporates iconic music, exhilarating dances, and amazing performances.

Inner Elder (April 23 to April 27): Award-winning Cree artist Michelle Thrush takes you on a journey of self-discovery and healing as she explores her own inner elder. It’s a performance that promises to open hearts, minds, and perhaps even make you laugh.
