Like they say in the biz, the show must go on.
While the rest of us may have been trying to think of creative things to do on the inside, Wayne Cyr and the staff and volunteers at Crescentwood Community Centre were busy working at their annual winter carnival, that was held this past weekend.
“The show will go on,” said Abbie Bajon last Friday, site manager at Crescentwood Community Centre. “Grab the kids, dress warm, and come out to see us.”
Hundreds of people took Bajon’s advice and came out to enjoy the weekend festivities.
The activities at Crescentwood, which included a cribbage tournament on Friday and a sno-pitch tournament throughout the weekend, were part of the larger Corydon Community Centre Annual Winter Carnival, a celebration held on the first weekend in February every year at Crescentwood, River Heights, and Sir John Franklin Community Centres.
In addition to the family activities, a highly anticipated hockey tournament–happening at all three sites–initially called off because of cold weather on Friday, resumed its schedule throughout the weekend.
While the minor hockey players were being forced to wait-out the cold, Bajon said the pond hockey tournament scheduled for Friday at 9:00 pm went on as planned with about 100 people participating.
