Recently the 1st Annual History Trivia Night was held at the Vernon Museum & Archives as part of Vernon Winter Carnival Events. Our Kiss FM Team “Kisstory Buffs” got to share some laughs and ideas with each other. We were rewarded with Chocolate Silver Dollars from the organizing committee. It was interesting to find out that the initial population of Vernon was 40 people! Vernon’s population has grown “since the olden days” as my kids put it.
On Saturday the Vernon Museum & Archives had a fantastic entry in the Vernon Winter Carnival Parade! This photo features Gabriel Newman and others from the Vernon Museum & Archives. They had the true “Carnival Celebrates Canada’s 150th” spirit!
Many were out to see the Vernon Winter Carnival Parade including my family and I. We like many braved the cold, froze our feet and enjoyed free hot chocolate. My daughter’s enjoyed receiving all the great candies and freebies such a noisemaker. So many businesses gave out promotional items. One of my daughter’s was supposed to be in the parade with the Girl Guides. But she said “Mommy, for once I’d like to see the parade, instead of being in it.” She got her wish. You may recognize a few faces in these photos I took of parade activities.
If you have photos to share of your favourite Winter Carnival event so far, TALK or TEXT 250-545-7557. And since it is Timeline Tuesday, I thought I’d share a photo of yours truly, and my friends Brenda and Lisa. Can you guess what year this photo was taken at the Vernon Winter Carnival?
I’ll let you know tomorrow on the Midday Show on 1075 Kiss FM.
Here’s to more Vernon Winter Carnival Fun! Melanie.
