Allie Dancey wants people to attend the Winter Carnival in her home town of Kippens.
That’s why she came up with this year’s slogan, “Come to the Winter Carnival, There is Fun and Games for Everyone.”
The carnival runs from today until Sunday and includes a long list of activities that are all free for those who have purchased a Kippens carnival button.
The activities kick off on Friday with a sock hop for children 12 and under at Kippens Community Centre with lots of prizes and giveaways. It’s followed at 8:30 p.m. with a poker run from the same location.
Saturday starts off with a carnival breakfast at the community centre and in the afternoon the outdoor fun and games with follow a 1:30 p.m. official opening.
The closing of the carnival is marked with a seniors dance starting at 8 p.m. at the community centre. A list of events is available at the town hall in Kippens.
