Downtown P.G. Preps for Winter Party

Thursday, January 12, 2017 @ 5:50 AM

Prince George, B.C.- One month from today,  Downtown Prince George will be the site of  a special Winter Carnival.

Downtown Prince George  has partnered with a number  of organizations and businesses  to celebrate  winter on February 12th.

The day long event,   set to take place in front of City Hall at 6th and  George Streets, will  offer opportunities to  play road hockey, see snow sport demonstrations,  snow sculpture,  and  a snow slide.  Downtown Prince George Manager,  Colleen Van Mook says there are other events in the  works “We are working with a lot of different partners, like Exploration Place the YMCA, two Rivers  Gallery,  so we’re working with them to provide activities,  so we will be sharing more  of that as we get closer to the day.”

And there’s  more,  or should that be ‘smore’?   The carnival will feature an ooey gooey  contest  that will have teams  try to  win over  attendees with the  best “smore”   treat.   Smore contest teams  will be  raising money from the sale of their  campfire treat for  the charity of their choice.

The only thing  the carnival needs now,  is for  the temperatures to  warm up  a bit  “We are happy to see the snow” says Van Mook, “We are happy to see the sun, but we want to make sure people will stay warm  and we’ll keep them moving.”

Both the Legion Winter Market and the Prince George Farmers Market will be open  for the duration of the carnival  and there will be food trucks on hand  for the   event which is set to run from 11 am to 5 pm on Sunday February 12th.



make sure you are not downtown for more than three hours though..actually three checks of the “fine the fools” system.

You can be longer than three hours as it is on a Sunday.
