Not only was the 25th-annual Nestor Falls Winter Carnival bigger and better, it went off without a hitch this past weekend with lots of activities, tons of prizes, and favourable weather.
“It was an exhausting weekend,” admitted Howard Dodd, who worked on promotions for the carnival. “But I’m very pleased with how it went. You never know what’s going to happen, but it was a big success.”
Beginning Friday evening, the weekend got off to a great start with the “Some Like it Hot” chili cook-off and “A Toonie for a Tune” karaoke contest.
Saturday continued with the popular ice-fishing tournament, a scavenger hunt, children’s games, a poker derby, and dance.
There also was a cribbage tournament, blind curling, and sleigh rides.
