Rossland Winter Carnival is getting closer with each week.
The festivities begin Jan. 24 and continue until the 27 for the 116th carnival.
Lisa Wegner, carnival organizer, said that things are coming together, but they are still looking for organizers.
There will be a table set up at Ferraro Foods for volunteer sign up for the next few weeks, the other option to sign up, said Wegner, is to hop online and visit www.rosslandwintercarnival.com to join in the volunteering fun.
The John Heintz Memorial Cup will be on again this year as well as a special presentation about Olaus Jeldness himself at the Prestige on Sunday, Jan. 27.
“Thankfully, Rotary is going to co-ordinate the John Heintz Cup for the 2013 Winter Carnival,” she said.
To celebrate Olaus’ contributions to the carnival, they will have 1,008 Olaus mustaches to give out during the events.
“Why 1,008, you may ask,” explained Wegner, on the extra 8 mustaches. “Because Olaus made it down the back side of Red in 8 minutes flat.”
While there is no Blizz Fest this year, there will be live music throughout the festivities.
Wegner said the carnival committee is inviting sponsors and volunteers to a get-hyped party Tuesday Jan. 22 at the Prestige Mountain Resort starting at 7 p.m.
