EDITORIAL: Still time to take part in Carnival

Vernon Winter Carnival may be coming to a close, but there’s still a plethora of activities to enjoy.

The 54th annual, 10-day Carnival of Superheroes wraps up Sunday.

So that still leaves three full days of activities to take in.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with some lovely events such as the St. James Valentine’s Day Family Fling at 5:30 p.m. or the Super Heroes in Love Dance at the Elks Hall at 8:30 p.m.

The annual Carter Classic fundraiser kicks off events Saturday at 8 a.m. at Silver Star.

Winter Carnival Family Day takes place in Polson Park Saturday with games, entertainment, a barbecue and more from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Or head to  the Downtown Vernon Association office at 2 p.m. for a passport to judge the Chilli Cook Off.

Get down at the Winter Carnival Blues Festival Saturday evening at the Vernon Recreation Complex or enjoy a Dinner of Champions at the Halina Centre.

Sunday features a Kids Karnival at the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club from noon to 4 p.m., Toonie and a Tin Skate at  Kal Tire Place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Appetizers and Art at the Village Green Hotel at 6:30 p.m.

Each day there’s also events at the Okanagan Science Centre, snowshoeing adventures and the top peewee teams playing in the Coca-Cola Classic at the Civic Arena.

But this a complete list, all the event details are online at vernonwintercarnival.com

They don’t call it Western Canada’s largest winter event for nothing!
