Early carnival Parade & silver star footage
February 12, 2021
Take a trip back in time to the 1964 Vernon Winter Carnival!
First stop: Winter Carnival Parade
We’re not sure what those vikings from the Revelstoke float are doing would go over very well today, that spider float is a bit horrifying, and at least one small child is not impressed! Nonetheless, it’s a charming and entertaining journey back to a parade of the past.
Next stop: Silver Star Mountain
This appears to be a slalom competition. We’re fairly certain those were the alpine downhill skis of the day, but it looks like people are competing downhill on nordic cross-country skis — and admirably so!
