The City of Williams Lake is ready to celebrate Halloween in style with its 43rd Annual Halloween Fireworks coming up October 31st at 7:45 pm at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds.
The community is invited to celebrate Halloween in costume and come enjoy a bonfire, hot chocolate and hot dogs by donation courtesy of the Williams Lake Lions Club and watch the show which, this year, will feature more fireworks than in years past.
Tailored for the community’s enjoyment by the City’s Municipal Services Department and kept safe by the Williams Lake Fire Department, the Halloween Fireworks are a completely free event. The gates open at 7 pm, and the bonfire is scheduled to be lit by 7:15 pm with the fireworks show to follow at 7:45 pm.
“After being forced to cancel the event in 2020 and then having a scaled back version in 2021, we are so excited to be able to proceed as usual with our Halloween fireworks show,” said Kaitlyn Atkinson, City of Williams Lake Manager of Community Services. “We can’t wait to see all of the families dressed up in costume at this year’s event, and hope everyone enjoys the show.”
If anyone would like to bring a carved jack-o-lantern there will be a table setup with pumpkin lights to show off the community’s creativity. There will also be a pie-eating contest for youth prior to the fireworks show starting at 7:15 pm with free registration for that event available online at www.williamslake.ca/programregistration.
The City of Williams Lake and staff at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex would like to thank Tolko for donating wood for the bonfire, Williams Lake Community Policing, the Williams Lake Stampede Association and the Williams Lake Lions Club for their generous contributions to the annual spectacle.
