An array of colourful events are lined up as tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 4 for A Mardi Gras Carnival.

The 56th annual Vernon Winter Carnival runs Feb. 5 to 14 with more than 90 events. While the events are still a while away, those who have an eye on a particular event are urged to grab tickets as soon as possible as they go on sale Friday at the Carnival office and some go fast.

“Suds and Cider sells out first, and Medieval and Irish Pub Night,” said Deb White, Carnival chairperson.

“We have tons of new events as well, we are so excited. It’s more than last year for sure.”

This year features a number of free events, including Family Day in the Park Feb. 8, as well as a number of Mardi Gras events and a lot of great new events.

“We stepped it up a bit this year,” said White.

Brochures are also ready, along with Carnival buttons, raffle tickets and a brand new website at www.vernonwintercarnival.com

Tickets to events go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday at the office which is located at 3401 35th Avenue (behind the rec centre), online and by phone 250-545-2236. The Carnival office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

“We’re going to be opening on Saturday’s in January,” said White.
