“Campbell River comes alive during the summer, and this year we’re making an extra effort to create a vibrant and inviting space downtown,” says Mayor Andy Adams. “These free-to-attend activities, such as Go By Bike week, are a great way to get together with friends and neighbours, enjoy our downtown, and learn or experience something new.”
