The Cariboo Country Christmas Craft and Trade Fair attracted all sorts of lakecity shoppers to support the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin.

A sort of a spiritual successor to the Cowboy Christmas Craft Fair and Concert, the Cariboo Country Christmas Craft and Trade Fair was held in the Elks Hall rather than the Gibraltar Room and boasted over 30 vendors.

Live music, much like the Medieval Market, was provided throughout the day by groups like the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle Society and the Cariboo Men’s Choir.

Special this year were the wagon rides the museum provided for any who were visiting the craft fair.

Families got the chance to ride in style down the streets of the lakecity in an old fashion horse and wagon buggy with stops at the Seniors Activity Centre, Medieval Market, Cariboo Bethel Church, Cataline Craft Fair, and the Williams Lake Seniors Village.
