Gearing up for Carnival

In just two short days the 58th annual Vernon Winter Carnival will kickoff bringing a whole lot of fun to the community for 10 days.

As usual, the 10-day carnival features tons of events that promise a good time.

This years theme is Carnival in Wonderland anyway you interpret it.

For some, that means portraying Alice in Wonderland and for others that means a winter wonderland.

The Vernon Winter Carnival Society coordinates and promotes about 100 events that take place in February each year.

Some of the most popular family-friendly events include the parade, snow sculpture competition and hot air balloon fiesta.

As well many sports tournaments, dinners and dances take place.

"We are blessed with hundreds of volunteers that help bring this carnival to life each year. As well, we are thankful for our sponsors," according to the Vernon Winter Carnival Website.

Carnival kicks off on Friday, Feb. 2, the day after Vernon's Queen Silver Star the 58th is crowned and runs until Feb. 11.
