2023 Vernon Winter Carnival was a huge success! We had record numbers in attendance at our Parade, Balloon Glow, and Family Fun Park. The Snowglobe Concert featuring the Reklaws, Ashley Cooke and Michael Daniels and DJ Lunchboxx was incredible. We rocked Kal Tire Place Arena. We celebrated Marti Giroux, Okanagan Spring Brewery and Secure Self Storage for awards in service and spirit. Over 350 volunteers were at our events and over 4200 hours of time, talent and energy was given by our wonderful community members. Our best decorated contest was so much fun, everyone enjoyed the theme of TV. The one-miler had it’s first year and over 80 runners completed the 1-mile just in front of our parade. Teams had fun at SnoGolf and Kickball, too. Our celebration of Culture and Senior’s Sock Hop were also fun-filled events. The Carnival Cops were in fine form and Jopo and Jopette agree that this was one to remember!
