Some local First Nations artists will also have crafts on display. Stroll into the carpet store and while looking for floor coverings discover a local artist. Or maybe when you stop in for toys you’ll find some art to take home too. Its great to see how everyone is joining in on the event.
Watch for enthusiastic characters like “Arty the Art Walker” to be roaming the streets. He’ll be out there with his oversized brush and paint pallet directing participants to stores hosting art. There will also be buskers throughout downtown ready to entertain shoppers and art lovers.
Make sure you stop in at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin to learn a little about the history of the region and to find out more about the local cowboys in the BC Cowboy Hall of Fame.
