On Feb. 29, we will all get one extra calandar day, courtesy of Leap Year! 24 extra hours to do whatever you want… How will you spend it? This is the question that The Kamloops Project hopes to find out. The purpose of the project is for people to capture a moment from that day and upload the picture and write up to www.kamloopsproject.ca . All of the submissions will become a part of a keepsake printed publication that will be distributed throughout the community.


When we heard about this Project here at Tourism Kamloops – we were excited to get involved! Next Wednesday, each of us will head out separately to take in something that Kamloops has to offer in way of attraction or activity. Afterwards we will be meeting up as a group to do take-in a larger ‘wow’ experience together. We will be posting the submissions here on our blog as well as uploading to the Kamloops Project website. Our goal is to spend the extra day this year taking in something we haven’t tried before and sharing that experience with you.


Furthermore, we are inviting people from the region and BC to spend their extra day in Kamloops. Many of our suppliers and partners have put together some great packages and specials for you people to take advantage of! Come stay the night ~ 5 different properties are offering great specials starting at $29.29 + tax per person! While here, get free admission at the Art Gallery, demo an off-road Segway for $20+tax or go see Western Canada Theatre’s newest production “Noises Off” – buy one ticket, get one ½ off! More deals and suggestions on how to spend your day can be found here: http://www.tourismkamloops.com/home_showSection_ID_1014.html


We’d love to hear how you plan to spend your extra day! Let us know on twitter by using #KamProject or share with us on www.facebook.com/tourismkamloops. Check back next Wednesday to see the update on what we did as well!
