Ludlow's 2009 Winter Carnival, the Village Vikings - Conquerors of Snow was last weekend. It proved to be another success. Okemo entered it's Viking Ship into the parade on Saturday evening. It sailed down main street with it's crew launching Snickers to all parade enthusiasts. The parade was followed up by Marshmallow roasting, a bonfire and a fabulous fireworks display at Dorsey Park.
Sunday was the inaugural Kid's Fun Race at Jackson Gore. This free race timed children as they ran up the huge mound of snow, down the backside, over bails of hay and thru the finish line. All children who participated won a prize. We had prizes for the fastest Boy and Girl, with a 6 & Under division and a 7 - 12 year old division.
This years winners were:
Boys - 6 & Under - Joseph Caldiero
Girls - 6 & Under - Emma Casey
Boys - 7 - 12 yrs - James McGuire
Girls - 7 - 12 yrs - Monigue Labarre
Well over 200 children participated in the Fun Race. Pictured are the winning Girls and their new goggles. We hope to see ya'll next year at the Ludlow Winter Carnival!
