Winter carnival set for Saturday in Beaverton

There’s no shortage of winter fun lined up in Beaverton on Saturday (Feb. 1).

The Beaverton Lions Club’s annual winter carnival gets underway bright and early with a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Beacan Presbyterian Church, while a community bake sale gets underway at 9 a.m. in the church’s central hall.

The outdoor activities on Simcoe Street and Old Mill Park – which include wagon rides, mini putt, ice slides, Zorb balls, crazy skis, face-painting and a barbecue – are set to open at 10 a.m.

Volunteers from the Beaverton Thorah Eldon Historical Society will be serving up a hot lunch 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Meeting Place.

Other activities lined up for the day include a scavenger hunt (from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting at Pirate’s Pizza), along with a tug of war (from 11:30 a.m. to noon at Old Mill) and a kids’ donut-eating contest (from noon to 12:30 p.m.).

The day wraps up with family skating at the arena from 1 to 3 p.m.

Those looking to take part can purchase a carnival button in advance for $2 from local merchants or Lions members. They will cost $3 on the day of the event and will be available at the pancake breakfast.
