Fifty exhibitors have registered to participate in the Rotary Exhibition taking place at the Cariboo Memorial Complex main arena this Friday, Saturday and Sunday and more will likely sign up this week, says event chair Mike Austin.
There will be a main stage set up with periodic live musical performances and also face painting for the kids and a display by Camp Likely.
The trade show features a wide variety of local businesses and visiting businesses from area communities on everything from financial institutions to home renovation, construction, automotive, recreation, student works booth, vehicles, health-care products and more. There will be a health booth where people can have their blood pressure taken and learn about stress management, Austin says.
“There will also be new companies with interesting new products,” Austin says. “Come down and visit with local vendors supporting your community.”
The exhibition runs Friday, May 4, from 5 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, May 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The $2 entry fee (adults only) helps the Williams Lake Rotary Club to support local charities.
“Once again the Rotary Club of Williams Lake is presenting an excellent opportunity for businesses to display their services, product and concepts at the Rotary Exhibition,” says club president Glen Holling.
“The Rotary Club uses this event to help fund projects that make lives easier in Williams Lake and surrounding areas.” Holling says. “Over the next year we will be allocating funds toward literacy projects and city public areas. It is only thanks to the support we receive every year from Williams Lake businesses and residents that lets us provide all the work and service we give to our community.”
