Likely will celebrate the May long weekend with its annual Victoria Day celebration on Saturday, May 16.
“We’ve got a parade starting at 10 a.m. that you will be able to see twice,” said Lisa Kraus, Likely’s community co-ordinator.
“The Williams Lake Stampede queen and princess will be there. A number of people from Williams Lake have been invited.”
The parade is organized by the Likely and District Rod and Gun Club.
After the parade there will be races for children and adults, and a great raffle with prizes ranging from a barbecue and life jackets to fishing gear.
Speaking of fishing, the community will also host its annual fishing derby throughout the weekend, with registration at the Valley General Store.
The first prize for the derby is $1,000, and second is $500.
“It will be a great weekend for people to come out and join local residents as they go out fishing,” Kraus said, adding Cedar Point Park is open for camping as are other surrounding lakes.
The community will also host a Canada Day celebration and a musical festival on the August long weekend.
Watch for details, Kraus said.
