Experience Holiday Cheer with Downtown’s Storybook Village
The 40th Annual Santa Claus Parade (A Non-Parade), presented by Thompson Rivers University (TRU) returns Sunday, November 29th till Tuesday, December 29th. Experience Holiday Cheer in Downtown Kamloops – the biggest outdoor celebration of the year!
For 2020, we are doing things differently this year in Downtown Kamloops.
This holiday season, you can safely explore a rendition of 11 Storybooks and loads of festive cheer in storefront windows at our Downtown Storybook Village starting 29th November until 29th December. Lights, ornaments, characters, and window paintings can be found on business fronts throughout the Downtown core. Instead of having to line our streets to watch the parade, you can now have a ‘drive-through’ parade environment or safely walk through Downtown safely and experience each of these displays.
11 reworded Books can be found at over 40 locations to add some much needed Holiday Cheer.

There is an interactive map for you to locate each storybook page.
On 100 Block in Downtown Kamloops, you can find Santa and his elves and even walk through a Candy Cane Forest. And Santa’s had set time apart for all the ‘Nice Kids’ of Kamloops. Book your virtual Visit with Santa – ‘Meet Santa on the Big Screen’ at the Paramount Theatre. If due to COVID-19, visits are not possible at the Paramount Theatre, a Zoom link will be provided to you so that your child(ren) can connect with Santa from home or another safe space.
You can do a fun family scavenger hunt this holiday season or just explore 1 book each day. Explore safely within your bubble, mask up and remember to stay 2 reindeers apart(6 ft)! 🦌🦌
✅ Oh, and don’t forget to VOTE for your Favourite Storybook Window Display – ‘Best Represented Story’.
