The Sussex Corner Winter Carnival is fun for everyone, not just skaters and skiers.
There is a modest Village in the southern part of New Brunswick. It's tree lined streets are typically quiet with comforting light shining from the tidy homes. During a weekend in February, this year it will be the 18th, this small Village of just over 1400people gets a bit rowdy as they celebrate with pure Canadiana. The Sussex Corner Winter Carnival is a growing event where people can come and participate in various outdoor winter activities. From pond hockey to snowshoeing, from sculpting to sliding, games to sleigh rides. Of course what is a Canadian winter carnival without maple candy made right on the snow.
I know where I'll be on the 18th. How about you? Why not sign up a team and compete in the Corner Cup, or come out Friday night and take part in an evening snowshoe trek to the Bluff, hosted by Outdoor Elements. This is a great evening event that is topped off with some laughs and hot chocolate while watching the pond hockey games.
There is lots of snow in Sussex Corner right now so snow sculpting will make a great family experience, as will the snow man competition or the Amazing Race on Saturday. For food connesiours there will be our fireside chowder and a barbeque canteer offering hot dogs and hamburgers. At the end of the night the entire Village anticipates the fireworks display and I hear this year's event will not dissappoint.
