Scaled down Canada Day planned

Activities will take place in Boitanio Park, Kiwanis Park and Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex

A scaled down Canada Day event will take place in Williams Lake on Thursday, July 1 from noon to 3:30 p.m.

Kaitlyn Atkinson, the city’s manager of recreation, said there will be children’s activities at Kiwanis Park such as parachute play, tattoos, freezies and the spray park.

Over at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex there will be free swimming, skating and laser tag.

Laser tag is a new event this year. It will take place on the dry floor arena and will be for children eight years and older.

Swimming, skating and laser tag all require pre-registration online at williamslake.ca/715/Perfect-Mind.

In Boitanio Park there will be cupcakes, lawn games, a slip and slide, and live music and no registration is required.

On Tuesday, Atkinson said with the province announcing some COVID-19 restriction changes, the capacity at the park and the pool will be 100 people as of July 1, while the rink will have a capacity for 50 and the laser tag will allow for 12 players at a time.
