Memorial Park will be covered in a blanket of snow for the second annual Winter Carnival on Dec. 14.

“We’re trucking in snow from Sunshine Valley,” said carnival organizer Deb Romano.

“It will be fun in the park, but you can also shop downtown and get some last minute deals.”

This year’s carnival will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Memorial Park and feature numerous activities.

Hope Motorsports Group is organizing toboggan runs and  The Hope Entertainment and Video Market will be playing Christmas music and movies outside. Andrew Tarrant, on behalf of Story Time in the Park, will also be reading The Night Before Christmas.

Other activities throughout the day include a radar hockey shot, which raises money for a local hockey team, snowball toss, snowman building, and a Christmas Market featuring more than a dozen vendors with a wide variety of items.

The Hope Lions will be also be offering hay rides with Santa starting at 4:30 p.m.

“It’s all the fun you could possibly have without spending a dime,” said Romano.

“But we’re constantly trying to add more to make it a lot more fun.”

For more information on the upcoming Winter Carnival, call Romano at 604-869-9507 or 604-860-3848.

Anyone interested in being a Christmas Market vendor can contact Sherry Farley at River’s Edge Barkery at 604-869-1262. Tables are still available.
