On Saturday Aug. 7, 2021, the Kamloops annual event ‘Hot Nite in the City’ is expected to attract numerous visitors to the area. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will feature approximately 300 display vehicles. In preparation, the Kamloops RCMP Detachment has been working with the City of Kamloops’ Community Services Officers and event organizers.
We encourage everyone to enjoy Hot Nite in the City however, as this is one of the first big events since COVID restrictions eased, we would like to remind those attending to be responsible and considerate of other people in attendance and of the community, said Corporal Dana Napier of the Kamloops RCMP Crime Prevention Unit.

Those attending are advised to plan ahead for accessing the event as Victoria Street will be blocked off between the 100 and 600-block for display vehicles. Motorists wishing to access Lansdowne Street must use 6th Avenue.
Event goers are also reminded to please follow the rules of the road, the bylaws of the City, and to help prevent crime by locking up and hiding their valuables.
Anytime you’re out in the community, it’s always a good idea to travel with a friend and use the buddy system if you can, said Cpl. Napier.
It never hurts to have a friend looking out for you, especially if you get lost or need help.
Kamloops RCMP Traffic services will also be present with enhanced traffic safety enforcement during the event and zero tolerance for impaired and unsafe driving.
