Read about the wealth of wonderful fall activities throughout this BC community, and where Williams Lake real estate owners go for fun and culture.
Where to Begin?
The best place to start looking for your next fall family and fun activity is the 2016/2017 Fall and Winter Active Living Guide offered by the Williams Lake web page. This pamphlet, available online, is a complete guide to all of the wonderful activities across Williams Lake over the fall and winter months.
Williams Lake believes in the importance of fun and recreation for our residents. Recreation is such an important part of our physical and mental health, and the community understands that for many, it carries a financial burden makes it difficult to partake in some of the more exciting activities.
That’s why the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex offers affordable recreation programs for a wealth of activities including boating, hiking, biking, dancing, fishing, and more. Whether it’s a children’s fitness tax credit, the Affordable Recreation Card or one of the many free fall events, there are options for all residents to enjoy fun in the fall.
Every Halloween, Williams Lake partners with the Fire Department, the Community Policing group and Tolko to organize a special fireworks display at Stampede Grounds. These fireworks are massive and can be viewed from areas all over town.
The Lion’s Club provides refreshments including hot chocolate and hot dogs at the park. This is an event not to be missed. It takes place on October 31, as soon as it gets dark.
Free Indoor Swimming
Many people don’t think about swimming during the fall, but the local businesses, community groups and individuals who sponsor free swimming events all year round know that even in the autumn, a dip in the pool is not only refreshing and fun, but great for physical fitness! Offered throughout the fall and winter, these events are open to the public.
Williams Lake Harvest Fair
A little late for this one, this year, but every September the community offers the Williams Lake Harvest Fair, featuring events like a lumberjack show, ranch challenge, Gymkhana demonstration, and a number of fun recreational and agricultural activities. If you’re new to the area, mark your calendar to this one next year!
