Family Fling a hot ticket event

The St. James Family Fling is slated for Friday, Feb. 14, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the school.

The Best New Event at the 2013 Vernon Winter Carnival returns for another fun family evening.

The St. James Family Fling is slated for Friday, Feb. 14, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the school.

“The people who attended last year are still talking about what a great night it was,” said event spokesperson Julie Boyle.

“It was so special to see kids teaching their parents new dance moves, and all ages enjoying the night together.”

The family fling was designed as an affordable event to help families celebrate and make Carnival memories together.

Some businesses used this as a family event for their staff last year or it was a great night out for extended families.

The cost is $5 per person with pre-schoolers getting in free.

There will be a live deejay sponsored by Boogie Nights, a Superhero photo booth to keep with the overall theme of Carnival of Superheroes, spot prizes and a concession.

New this year is the addition of a face painter.

“We nearly sold out last year, so get your tickets early this time,” said Boyle.

Tickets are available at the St. James School office by calling 250-542-4081 or the Winter Carnival office.
