The BC Lions are not only taking their training camp to Kamloops this season, they’re taking their annual fan fest day there as well. The Lions informed us on Twitter today that the popular family event will take place at Hillside Stadium, home of the Lions 2010 training camp, on Saturday, June 12th from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
The event is usually themed towards families and season ticket holders, but clearly the Lions are trying to emphasize the “BC” in BC Lions. The day features a player meet and greet with autographs and pictures, and usually has a short no contact scrimmage for those in attendance.
There is no word if anything will be held for fans and season ticket holders in the lower mainland. The Lions play their first exhibition game on June 13th in Regina, and open up Empire Field the following weekend against the Edmonton Eskimos on June 20th.
