Caribou Carnival Final Day

Caribou Carnival 2010 has come to a close. I’m pleased to say that this year was the year of resurrecting the carnival. Over the past 2 or 3 years it seemed it was slowly slipping further and further out of our minds, but now they are back, and in full force. I, Kyle, want to thank Rick Poltaruk, James Boraski and all the volunteers and performers for putting on an excellent weekend. It was awesome to attend and see everyone having a good time.

Our final day at the carnival consisted of watching the Dogs take off at 1pm, seeing the Waiter and Waitress Challenge, sitting in on the Gospel Hour in the big tent, seeing some of the dog teams finish and the closing ceremonies. The carnival was dwindling down by mid Sunday, as it should have been, because I was quickly loosing energy as well. I have tried to capture the Carnival for everyone, and have it up online in a relatively quick time. Here is a video and photos from the final day of Caribou Carnival 2010.
