All the attention on Wintervention
Beat the wintry blues at Wintervention

If you can’t beat winter, then you might as well join in on the snowy fun, at Crowsnest Cando Society’s Wintervention, running from February 24 to 26.

This is the first time that Wintervention will be held over three days, as opposed to the two days in previous years.

Five brand new events are set to launch at this year’s winter festival: a bake sale by the Bellecrest seniors, a dueling piano event, Kananaskis Rodeo Association’s Pole & Spur skijoring event, skating in the park at the Bellevue Outdoor Rink and a snow sculpture contest.

“Wintervention is geared up for community, so even though there are costs for some events, lots of events are free, especially with spectator sports,” says Randall Shemko, the fundraising director of Crowsnest Cando.

“We’d like people to flood the Crowsnest Pass, enjoy our beautiful surroundings here and what we enjoy in the winter or take for granted.”
Many of the events that have traditionally taken place at the gazebo in downtown Blairmore will now be held at the Sartoris Staging Area. Clear signage will be posted to direct winterventioners to the territory.

The Cando Society’s signature dinner/dance/silent auction will take place on Saturday, February 25, and you should get out your bell-bottoms and afro wigs because this year’s theme is “the 70s.”

Country Encounters will cater the event and two bands will provide live entertainment, Frontera Sur and The Big Beat Project Band. DJs Daryl Ferguson and Bob Morrow will also be part of the evening’s entertainment.

Previously held at Elk’s Hall, the dinner/dance will be at the MDM Community Centre in Bellevue this year for a larger capacity.

Tickets are $50 and will be sold until the afternoon of Friday, February 24, 2017.

A bin for non-perishable food items will be set up at every event to be donated to the Crowsnest Food Bank.
