Chapleau Winter Carnival Continues

Festivities are continuing for Chapleau's "Taste of the North" Winter Carnival.

While today's events include the annual broomball tournament during the day, Leisure and Culture Services Director Mike Jones says there's a new event for kids tonight: a Nerf War.

Jones also reminds that the annual snowmobile torch light parade has been cancelled, due to unfavourable conditions on the river, though plans are still to have the lighting of the carnival bonfire at the Recreation Centre, skiing at the ski hill, and women's shinny hockey at the AW Moore Arena.

Poor conditions on the lake have also caused another event to be cancelled: Chapleau Cree First Nation's annual kids fishing derby is being replaced with ice rink and sliding or luge activities, based at the Chapleau Cree Outdoor Ice Rink from 11 to 2 Sunday.

A full schedule of events is available on the municipal website,

Carnival keychains are needed for many events, available at the AW Moore Arena.
