Cari-zoo photo contest invites lakecity to get creative this fall

Downtown Williams Lake is inviting lakecity to partake in a photo contest for a Starbucks gift card

Downtown Williams Lake is inviting the lakecity to partake in a photo contest this month to celebrate the completion of their latest mural and to welcome the new Williams Lake Starbucks officially to the downtown.

This newest “critter-tastic” mural was painted by local artistic duo Tiffany Jorgensen and Sarah Sigurdson and features a half dozen unique and exciting animals. They and Downtown Williams Lake designed the mural to be one people could take selfies with and now are offering an added incentive to do so.

Called the Cari-zoo photo contest, this contest begins now and run until Monday, Nov. 4 at 12 p.m. and is being put on in Collaboration with Cariboo Art Beat. The winner of the contest will receive a $50 Starbucks gift card and bragging rights.

To enter, one needs to simply check out the Cari-zoo mural at the corner of Third Avenue and Oliver Street, beside Downtown Williams Lake’s parking lot and across from Mr. Mikes, to snap of fun photo of yourself interacting with the animals. Downtown Williams Lake encourages the public to get creative and advises Halloween as a perfect time to grab a cool shot.

• Open to all residents of Williams Lake.
