Tickets go on sale at 9 am Dec 7th for Vernon Winter Carnival events.
The 59th annual event with the theme ‘A Pirate’s Carnival’ will be held next February 1-10, presented by Valley First.
“The line up of events this year is absolutely amazing,” says executive director Vicki Proulx. “There is literally something for everyone to do.”
Over 95 events have been booked, 33 which will have tickets on sale Dec 7th.
“Returning favourite events do sell out quickly, so don’t be disappointed and buy your tickets early, they make great Christmas gifts,” says Proulx.
One change this year will see sales for the popular Suds N Cider event only available over the phone or in person at the Carnival Office due to the high volume of sales in past years.
