Winter Carnival 2011 is on its way. For those of you who are from the local area this might seem like just another year, but, as Michigan Tech students, this Winter Carnival should be particularly special.
The festivities began this weekend with the crowing of our 2011 Winter Carnival Queen (Lydia Patch) on Saturday and curling and snow volleyball on Sunday. The celebrations officially begin on Wednesday February 9 at 10:00 pm. All classes will be canceled on Thursday and Friday so strap on your snow pants, head to campus, and enjoy.
Even if you’re not competing with a Winter Carnival team, there are lots of great activities to fill your weekend. Watch statue construction from 4pm on Wednesday to 8am on Thursday. After a quick nights rest, enjoy the Beards Competition or Stage review, with showings from 1pm-9pm on Thursday. Enjoy free sleigh rides and dog sled rides on Friday and top it all off with fireworks and the torchlight parade on Saturday.
