“The board of directors had quite a task,” says Carnival chair Deb White. “The suggestions were wide ranged, however a theme was chosen! We look forward to begin planning with the new theme and are we are always impressed with the ideas the community comes up with for their events.”
White says Carnival Celebrates Canada’s 150th this past February was a huge success honoring Canada’s 150th anniversary.
“The community never ceases to amaze. We saw so many colorful and festive costumes and decorations. Attendance at all events was amazing. We are anticipating as much excitement for next year’s Carnival,” adds White, who will return for a second year as chairperson.
