The 56th annual Vernon Winter Carnival has begun!

The Vernon Winter Carnival has officially begun and whether new to town or veteran Vernonites there is sure to be something to please and excite you!  The balloon glow will start at 5pm tonight at the Kin Race Track 12645109_969853286402527_6490422288716662703_n

Another favourite event of mine is the dinner theatre held at the Schubert Centre.  Once again Vernon’s own Mike Poirier has written a play that exudes the Mardi Gras theme .  After enjoying a meal prepared with a New Orleans flare you will be entertained with music, ghosts and shennigans as Mardi Gras Mayhem hits the stage!


Of course you won’t want to miss the parade on Feb. 6th starting at noon on 27th street.  There are sure to be colourful entries this year and definitely fun for the whole family!

Don’t forget to make your way up to Silver Star Mountain to view all the magnificent snow sculptures that have been created by artists country wide.snow-sculpt

The week is filled with dances, shows outdoor events and good food!  Go to for a full list of events and times.

Go out and enjoy all that the Vernon Winter Carnival in beautiful Vernon, BC has to offer!
