The 2008 McCall Winter Carnival is set for January 25- February 3 and will be themed Wild, Wild West! This year’s event will continue with many of the well-loved traditions of Carnivals past, such as elaborate snow sculptures, Monte Carlo Night, the Mardi Gras Parade and the popular beer garden.

In addition this year, some new events and opportunities for visitors will be available including an extreme rider snowmobile event

and locally designed commemorative pins and shirts. Also new this year is the ability to purchase items such as event tickets, merchandise and sponsorship opportunities online with your credit card.

“The McCall Chamber is excited to host the 43rd Annual McCall Winter Carnival. We recognize that thousands of people come to town each year to enjoy the McCall way of life and experience the winter events with their families. We are excited to enhance this event and we encourage vendors and sponsors to sign-up quickly because space is running out,” said Tamara Sandmeyer, Executive Director of McCall Chamber of Commerce.

Other events, including Snowshoe Golf, the Monster Dog Pull, the Snowmobile Fun Run and live music are scheduled for the 10-day festival. Sign-ups for Sponsors, Event Chairman and Vendors are being accepted now.
