Performances in the Park begin Thursday in Williams Lake

Miss White Spider and One Below to grace Gwen Pharis Ringwood Stage

It’s finally summer, and that means one thing for Thursday evenings in Williams Lake: Performances in the Park.

Opening night is July 5, and the evening is set to feature two local acts that won’t dissapoint: Miss White Spider and local rock band One Below. Performances will begin at 6 p.m. and will go until 8 p.m. in Boitanio Park, at the Gwen Ringwood stage.

Miss White Spider will open the evening, with a performance that promises to take the viewer into the land of fairy tales and dance. Miss White Spider is a hometown songstress who works with a loop petal to create eclectic stories and electro/acoustic soundscapes.

She’s promoting her new CD, Butterfly, and is kicking off her summer tour.

One Below will follow the mystic Miss White Spider, withn eclectic high energy set that will pull you out of your lawnchairs and get your feet tapping. Also from Williams Lake, the group has been honing their unique, Cariboo style of up-tempo, high energy and get-up-and-dance music that will not dissappoint.

For those looking for a little extra, Cody’s Bannock, Taylor Made Cakes and the Fennel Cup will be on site providing tasty treats, bannock, sandwiches, pizza, cupcakes, Indian food and burgers.

An Art in the Park kid’s corner, hosted by the Community Arts Council, will have special art projects.

Performances in the Park are supported by a number of community and business spnsors.
