The Brownsburg Carnival takes place on Saturday, February 17 at La Randonée Ski Centre at 424, route du Nord, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

There are many activities for children, including inflatable games, sleigh rides, tube sliding, dogsled rides and there is access to the showshoe trails and cross-country skiing is also on the fun list (there are rental costs for equipment). There will be a campfire, food and hot beverages, too! Something new this year is that participants have the chance to try out the “fat bike” for free! A kiosk will be on site to demonstrate and help participates discover this winter sport.

The second snowman competition will also takes place. Participants are invited to form a team (teams can register on-site the same day) and can bring tools and accessories needed to create and dress up their snowman. A $100 prize will be presented to the winner at 3 p.m.

The carnival is made possible with the support of many community organizations. The municipality of Brownsburg-Chatham extends its thanks to the OriCare Foundation of Orica Canada, the Brownsburg-Chatham Maison des jeunes, the Oasis Golf Club, the Aventure 78 pro shop and the many volunteers who have made the carnival possible!
