Not all Carnival contests involve eating, of course. The coronation of this year’s Winter Carnival King and Queen will take place just before fireworks kick off the weekend at Lake Front Park at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8. To nominate someone for this honor, download the nomination form at www.cooperstowncarnival.org. Nominations are due by Friday, Jan. 25. Nominees must be two high school students who display an exemplary attitude and outstanding character toward others in our community.
Children 12 and under can participate in the Winter Carnival Coloring Contest. Prizes will be awarded at the Carnival Closer for the top three entries in each age group. One entry per person will be accepted. Enter by dropping off the colored logo at the Carnival Kiosk during the Carnival or mail entries to P.O. Box 912. All entries must be received by noon Sunday, Feb. 10.
According to the committee, these contests are only the beginning of all the Carnival’s delectable delights. A complete listing of events will be available at www.cooperstowncarnival.org in early January.
The 2013 committee members include Co-Chairs Teresa Mae Leveille and Sarah Lewandowski, Doug Gable, Mike DeSimone, Stephen Light, Lora Newell, John Saphier, Emily Voss, Ed Warner and Brian Wrubleski.
The carnival is sponsored by the Lions Club of Cooperstown.
