Show Your Support for Seniors This Holiday Season

December 10, 2020 at 9:42 am  Kamloops, Municipal, News

The City of Kamloops regrets to announce that this year’s annual Seniors’ Christmas Lights Tour, which would have been the 46th annual tour, has been cancelled to keep seniors, their families, volunteers, and all holiday lovers in our community safe and healthy.

What started as a one-off event with two buses and fewer than 60 seniors has grown into an annual Kamloops tradition with over 600 seniors, 25 buses, and close to 100 volunteers.

“The seniors light tour is a wonderful Kamloops tradition, and we look forward to gathering again in 2021. This year, we’re hoping that we can bring joy to seniors in other ways,” said Mayor Ken Christian.

The City invites you to share your holiday spirit for seniors this season in a different festive way by participating within the community in one or more of the following ways:

  • watch the virtual CP Holiday Train online on December 12 at 5:00 pm
  • decorate your home for the enjoyment of others
  • sponsor a senior Christmas hamper or stocking stuffer
  • send a card to a seniors residence
  • take a loved one to the Downtown Kamloops Story Book Village

Whatever you do to share your Christmas spirit with the senior(s) in your life, please do it safely and in accordance to the provincial health regulations. 

The City looks forward to welcoming seniors, volunteers, and route spectators back to the annual tour in 2021.
