Organizers of the second annual Williams Lake Winter Carnival are looking for volunteers to assist with all aspects of the free family oriented event that is coming up Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 30 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

From horse-drawn sleigh rides, to snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snow art contest, sledding hill, igloo building, ice skating, to First Nations cultural events taking place in a tee pee, a Kiddie Corral Playpen, and mini animal exhibit there are numerous opportunities for some fun volunteer activities.

For those who like to cook there will be a chili cook-off scheduled for the event with entry forms for both professional and home cooking categories available at CJ’s Restaurant.

Leaders are in place for most events, who now need to fill out their volunteer rosters.

Most activities will take place in Boitanio Park, with skating taking place in the Cariboo Memorial Complex.
