Saturday night, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce celebrated the top performers in local business.

Via an online event, the chamber handed out more than a dozen awards to local standouts. This year, two new awards were added: one for the trades and one for emerging business of the year.

"On behalf of our Board of Directors and our Chamber team, I want to congratulate the winners, the finalists,
and all of the nominees of this year’s awards," says chamber president Tyson Andrykew in a press release.
