Winter Carnival

Categories: Events

From 1969-1972 the carnivals were staged every year. Snow sculptures were built on the lawn in front of Kettler Hall, and contests such as sled races, snowshoe races, snowball fights and three-legged races were held with prizes and trophies awarded at a dance on the weekend. A winter carnival queen was crowned; the first, in 1969, was Conie Salud. Bonnie Bunch was the 1970 queen.
