Excitement brews for upcoming 4 Directions Festival

The Williams Lake BIA continues to prepare for the biggest downtown event of the year-the 4 Directions Festival.

Kate Lines is the executive director.

“We know from the Stampede Association that they get 16,000 people in attendance at their event so let’s draw them all in. That’s a big reason why we made the event so long from 12 until 9 at night.”

Lines says they are currently looking for 10 volunteers for the July 1st event to help mainly with the set up.
