Cowboys and cowgirls from around the region gather for the annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo, which is held at the city’s Cariboo Memorial Arena. This three-day event is the BC Rodeo Association’s second largest rodeo, and it delivers heart stopping competitions and top cash prizes.
In addition to time-honored rodeo events such as calf roping and bareback riding, the entertainment includes clowns and a drill team – a group of horseback riders showcasing high-speed patterns and maneuvers in rhythm to music. Pancake breakfasts, live music and dances keep visitors entertained from day until night.
