Whitefish Winter Carnival upcoming events

| January 12, 2022 1:00 AM

The Whitefish Winter Carnival LXIII started off last week with the festive, bawdy adults-only Merry Maker party on Jan. 8 at the Whitefish Moose Lodge. It's a hilarious and hearty roast of Whitefish and current events.

This year’s carnival theme is ‘80s Rewind Totally Rad.

Festivities next week include the coronation of King Ullr and the Queen of the Snows and the Disco Party.

The coronation is a fun, family event that takes place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at the O’Shaughnessy Center. Be sure to get your Viking Diva kiss for protection from the lurking Yetis.

The Disco Party gets started at 9 p.m. at the Great Northern Bar - Prepare to groove. There will be prizes for the best costume. You must be 21 or older to attend and there is a $15 cover charge, which includes a Carnival button.

On Jan. 21, Prince Frey and Princess Freya will be coronated at 7 p.m. at Whitefish High School ahead of the boys varsity basketball game. Join the annual tradition and cheer on the Bulldogs.
