St. Adolphe Winter Carnival Back in Full Swing

Share:

Winter Carnival Crop1

The St. Adolphe Winter Carnival has been a staple of winter for decades. But like so many other events, it was cancelled for several years due to the pandemic. The good news is that the carnival is back in full swing this year. The event, to be held February 2–5 will be packed with fun-filled activities for the whole family.

On Thursday, you can head out to A Maze in Corn from 5:00–9:00 p.m. for a walk through the snow maze. St. Adolphe residents will receive 50 percent off their admission ticket during that time.

On Friday, the kids can start their weekend right with a dance for ages Pre-K to Grade Four from 6:30–8:00 p.m. and a dance for Grades Five to Eight from 8:30–10:00 p.m. There will be a $5 entry fee.

On Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., the young ones can continue their party at the kids carnival, which will also come with an entry fee of $5. Then they can tire themselves out with some dodgeball for only $2. Dodgeball games for ages 12–15 will be from 2:30–3:15 p.m. and for ages 7–11 from 4:00–4:45 p.m.

Saturday night will showcase the adult social, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m. The theme this year is “A Night at the Movies,” so dress up as your favourite movie character and dance to the stylings of DJ Mama Cutsworth and DJ Hunnicutt. Tickets are available at the St. Adolphe Arena Canteen for $10.

Sunday features the annual curling funspiel from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and costs just $10 per team. Afterward, the doors open at 4:30 p.m. for family bingo.

Aside from all this fun, there is also the hockey. St. Adolphe is a hockey-loving town and on Saturday, February 4, the Hawks of all ages will be on the ice all day. The U7 Hawks start the day at 8:00 a.m., the U9 Hawks Female at 9:15 a.m., the U9C at 10:30 a.m., the U9A at 11:45 a.m., the U11C at 1:00 p.m., and the U13C at 4 p.m.

At 2:30 p.m., the U11B Hawks will play a special game in honour of Taylor Christensen. Christensen was a St. Adolphe Hawk who passed away during his Timbit hockey year.

“A game in his memory will be played and we have retired his jersey number, 10,” says Kori Plesiuk, a member of the carnival planning committee. “There is also a Taylor Christensen Memorial Fund where all of our weekend 50/50 earnings are being combined with a donation from the St. Adolphe Minor Hockey Club. This money is then used to send two Hawk players, drawn at random, to attend a camp of their choosing.”

If you have any questions or would like to make a donation to the silent auction, bingo, or the Taylor Christensen Memorial Fund, please contact stadolphecarnival@gmail.com.
