2016 Carnival Theme
Vernon Winter Carnival will have the feel of New Orleans or Brazil.
The Feb. 4 to 14, 2016 event will follow the theme of A Mardi Gras Carnival.
“With more than 100 theme suggestions from the community, the board of directors had quite a task,” said Diana Willimson, executive director.
“Many of the suggestions were based around warmth, and after much deliberation the board narrowed the choice to A Mardi Gras Carnival. The bright colourful theme will lend itself to a festive atmosphere for the 10 days of the 56th Vernon Winter Carnival.”
This year’s theme was Carnival of Rock and Roll.
“The carnival society is really pleased with the participation of the community,” said president Doug Edgar.
“To see such attendance at all these events is very satisfying. We are anticipating as much excitement for next year’s A Mardi Gras Carnival.”
