Enjoy the Vernon Winter Carnival Parade and then fly, run at lightning speed or just drop in at the Greater Vernon Museum & Archives Feb. 8 between 1:30 p.m.  and 3:30 p.m. to take part in the Superhero Training Camp.

Children can participate in a variety of activities, and those that complete all stations will have their name entered into a draw for a superhero prize pack.

And when they’re finished, they can regain their strength with a cup of hot chocolate and snacks.

“This will be a great event for all family members to connect and share their interest and passion for past and present Superheroes,” said Jennifer Ng, museum education coordinator and coordinator of this event.

Participants will also be the first to see the museum’s vintage superhero comic book display. Don’t miss out, as this display only runs Feb. 8 to March 1, during regular museum hours of Tuesday to Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Pre-registration for Superhero Training Camp is encouraged, with admission by donation. Please call 250-542-3142 to reserve your spot.

The Greater Vernon Museum & Archives is at 3009-32nd Ave. Find out more at www.facebook.com/vernonmuseum or see the Web site at www.vernonmuseum.ca
