Kamloops BC – On May 25th & 26th BrewLoops Cultural Development Society will kick off the summer season with beer, food trucks, live music and a new collaboration featuring the 2019 Southern BC FireFit Regional Championships.
“It’s not often that the average Joe gets to see firefighters in action,” says Tyson Andrykew, co-chair of BrewLoops Society, “and I think this is a wonderful opportunity for our community to see these highly trained athletes in action paired with some great craft beer.”
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the event, the Scott FireFit Championship is a competition based on fire fighting tasks commonly performed in emergency situations. There are many different levels of competitors, from the seasoned 10-year veteran to the first time rookies.
While our hometown fire fighters have not competed on home soil for a while, they are no strangers to regional, national and world events that have take place across the continent. Placing first in the Male Individual Canadian Nationals, Individual World Championships and Over 40 Tandem World Championships are just a few of the titles our home team have won in 2018 alone.
The BrewLoops Downtown Block Party and FireFit competition will take place in the Sandman Centre parking lot, allowing event goers to take in the sights of the beautiful Riverside Park, and North & South Thompson Rivers. This FREE family friendly festival will kick off with beer and the FireFit Championships running from 11am-4:30pm. A ticketed portion of the BrewLoops Downtown Block Party will happen from 6pm-11on on Saturday, May 25th.
The festival will showcase over 20 breweries & cideries, and 9 bands from across the province during the two days of the event.
Tickets and drink tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased at www.kamloopslive.ca.
Formed in 2014, this will be the BrewLoops Society’s fifth year in operation, and has donated more than $75,000 to local charities in 2018.
