Festival chair Lorraine Ackerman says anticipation is building as the time for the Centreville-Wareham-Trinity Indian Bay Winter Carnival nears.

"We’re celebrating not only our 24th winter carnival, we’re recognizing Canada’s 150th anniversary, she said.

The birthday tribute will start with a couple of numbers in the opening night variety show and carry throughout the week's events as people are encouraged to wear red or anything Canadian.

Wearing red might win you a prize. In the festival booklet, the committee has listed 15 trivia questions about Canada. If you’re spotting wearing red, you may be approached to answer a question. If your answer is correct, you could win a ticket to one of the events or another prize.

"It’s up to people to research it," she said.  "We're trying to generate interest in Canada. And people can learn something as well."

The festival will also include most of its regular events, including games of cards, crib, darts and bingo, free skates, a snowmobile safari run, fireworks, a carnival dance, a church service and many meals served up by community groups.

According to Ackerman the meals are really popular, with close to 500 people showing up for brunch last year. But if you’re looking for tickets to the Italian night, you’re out of luck. They were already sold out before the brochure was issued.
