Cornwall Winterfest Carnaval set to dazzle this February 18–20

January 11, 2012

The Storm Realty Cornwall Winterfest Carnaval 2012 will be held Family Day Weekend February 18th, 19th and 20th in Cornwall, Ontario's Lamoureux Park!

This is a "Celebration of Family" and a premier winter event that brings the entire community and area together!

The list of planned events and activities is quite long and includes outdoor skating in Lamoureux Park, children shows, polar bear swim, music, entertainment, snowshoeing, curling, and much more!

Winterfest 2011 had an impressive turnout with 14,000 in attendance and organizers are anticipating even larger numbers for 2012 after officially announcing that TEAM CANADA – David
Whysall International Fireworks will be presenting two nights of Spectacular Fireworks both February 19th and 20th at 6 pm.

Back–to–Back Fireworks is a first for our community, future plans have Winterfest hosting an International Fireworks Competition and this is the first step as to making it happen. Team Canada Fireworks are world class and by the show they put on last year, Cornwall and area are in for a treat!

Storm Realty Cornwall has been announced as the Winterfest Title Sponsor for the second year in a row and Steve Iwachniuk and his family are excited to once again take part with this tremendous
community event.

The twelve member volunteer committee has been hard at work with all the last minute details in making this year's Festival the best yet! Members include: Chair Jason Mitchell, Vice–Chair Jason
Setnyk, Treasurer Jessica Adams, Councillor Syd Gardiner, Lucie Hart, Davey Bedard, Kimly Thivierge, Rodney Rivette, Martine Leroux, Gary Samler, Helene Paquin and Kent Dechaines.

Cornwall Winterfest is also introducing a new $25,000 Hockey Shot event in partnership with the Cornwall Colts Junior A Hockey Team. The $25,000 Hockey Shot will be presented at each Thursday night home game beginning Thursday January 12th against the Smiths Falls Bears. The event will run until the Colts host the Pembroke Lumber Kings at the Official Winterfest Hockey Game February 16th.

Anyone in attendance at the Colts game will get a free chance to register for the Hockey Shot at the Winterfest Booth. People can also make a goodwill donation of any amount for a second chance.

Please support Winterfest and your Cornwall Colts down the stretch.
