Are you ready for Vernon Winter Carnival?

There is a great line up of events this year, for Carnival Celebrates Canada’s 150th.

The 57th annual Vernon Winter Carnival runs Feb. 3 to 12, 2017 with close to 100 events.

While the events are still a while away, those who have an eye on a particular event are urged to grab tickets as soon as possible, as many sell out very early.

Suds and Cider sells out first, Medieval and Irish Pub Night,” said Deb White, Carnival chairperson.

“We have tons of new events as well, we are so excited. It’s more than last year, for sure.”

As in previous years, there are a number of free events, including Family Day in the Park and Snow Sculpture at Silver Star. You may want to take in one of the many free dance lessons available, along with a lot of great new events.

“We stepped it up a bit this year,” said White. “You have a chance to win tickets to Suds and Cider. Information at the Carnival office.”

Brochures will be also ready soon; however you can buy your Carnival buttons and Jopo raffle tickets now! There are also ballots to enter for hockey jerseys.
