60th annual Vernon Winter Carnival parade attracts thousands

Everyone loves a parade

It's been said everybody loves a parade, and thousands of people braved the cool February air to take in the 60th annual Vernon Winter Carnival event.

For more than an hour Saturday floats, service groups and a bevy of other participants wound their way through the city streets.

And making a triumphant return to the parade was the Vernon Girls Trumpet Band.

Numerous band alumni got back together this year to march once again. The band had long been one of the key players in the parade, but the band disbanded in 2009.

But band members got together to celebrate 60 years of carnival and were greeted with applause from the audience.

The parade may be the biggest carnival event, but there are plenty of things to see and do as carnival carries on until Feb. 16.
