Emerson Winter Carnival Cancels On-Snow Events
by Don Piett
The Emerson Winter Carnival has cancelled the events scheduled for Sunday at the Emerson Park.  There is not enough snow for the sliding, cardboard toboggans, and sled dog events.  There is also no fresh snow in the forecast before February 25.  Weather network predicts daytime highs above zero and sunny for most of this week. 

The Winter Ice Party scheduled for Friday, February 23 at the Emerson Arena and the Cornhole competition and Snow Glow Social at the Emerson Community Complex on Saturday are still on the schedule. 

On Friday at the Arena events start at 5:30 pm with skating, a costume contest for best neon colours, glitter tattoos.  The Canteen will be open.  At 7:15 a figure skating show is scheduled and a 50/50 hockey shootout at 7:45.  The evening will wind up with a game of shinny.

The Saturday Cornhole tournament and social will go ahead as scheduled.  Cornhole starts at 1:00 pm and there will be a canteen and cash bar.  The Emerson Kinder College Daycare will run a Rainbow Auction. 

The Snow Glow Social starts at 8:00 pm at the Emerson Complex.  Music is provided by Big Show Productions.  Tickets cost $10 and are available at Emerson Bigway, ScotiaBank, Access Credit Union in Emerson, Ridgeville Club in Ridgeville, Barnay's in Letellier and Emerson Complex committee members.

The lack of snow is unfortunate but come out to the other events and have a good time.
