(Kamloops) The BC Lions Football Club is pleased to invite fans to 2017 FanFest presented by BCLC this Saturday, June 10 from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops, site of the team’s 2017 Training Camp presented by Sun Peaks Resort.

Staying with the popular evening format introduced last year, fans can enjoy an assortment of Budweiser products in the Shark Club beer tent and cap the night with another event-ending fireworks display.

As in past years, FanFest will feature a number of great family-friendly attractions including performances by the Felions Dance Team, in-practice player interviews and the always-fun Kids Zone with inflatable games, face painting and much more.

Following the Play With the Pros football clinic from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm, Lions fans will get a sneak preview of the 2017 team during an on-field practice session running from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm and get to meet their gridiron heroes with an autograph session that goes from 9:00 pm to 9:30 pm.

Fans are encouraged to return to the stands after the autograph session wraps up and enjoy the fireworks show.

Fanfest is also the perfect opportunity to gear up for the 2017 season as a wide selection of new adidas merchandise will be available for purchase as well as the ever-popular official Training Camp t-shirt for just $20.00.

The BC Lions are back on the field for their second and final pre-season game on Friday, June 16 at BC Place versus the Saskatchewan Roughriders presented by Pepsi.
