The community is invited to celebrate fall in all its glory this Sunday, Oct. 21 for the Williams Lake Harvest Walk and Run.
Hosted by the City of Williams Lake’s Recreation Services Department, runners, walkers and riders are encouraged to lace up their shoes for what will be the fourth annual event.
The five- or 10-kilometre routes begin and end in the parking lot at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
The Harvest Walk and Run, meanwhile, is intended to encourage residents to remain active and healthy all year long.

Everyone is invited to come out to enjoy a stroll in the city, and all types of active transportation is welcome including wagons, roller blades, strollers, wheelchairs, walkers, bikes and scooters.
Prize baskets of locally-grown food will be available to be won, among other draw prizes.
“There will be amazing baskets of locally grown food available to be won, and pumpkins and scarecrows will be placed along the route for participants to play a harvest scavenger hunt,” said Denise Skarra, recreation co-ordinator with the City. “Participants can submit completed forms of pumpkin and scarecrow locations for complimentary family swim/skate admissions.”
The event is free and no registration is required. The run, traditionally, is a great time to enjoy some beautiful fall colours and to celebrate active living and local food.
This year’s Harvest Walk and Run begins at 11 a.m.
