Part of the fourth annual Worldwide Photo Walk, the Nanaimo event takes place Oct. 1 from 3-5 p.m. and is led by Olivia Mah, photo electronics manager at London Drugs in Port Place Shopping Centre.

The free event is open to 50 photographers of all skill levels from point-and-shoot to professional.  Participants meet at 2:45 p.m. at the London Drugs entrance and then venture out to the waterfront and together explore Nanaimo from Front to Fitzwilliam streets, checking out Gallery Row, Heritage Mews, the Old City Quarter and ending at the Diana Krall Plaza on Commercial Street.

In event of poor weather, the walk will be held Oct. 2, same route, same time.
