The annual Winter Carnival is an opportunity for the community to get out and enjoy winter, and is also a fantastic time to visit Altona. Take part in a day filled with family fun and activities for all ages. Put on your parka and your winter boots, and take in the cardboard toboggan competition - there are prizes for the fastest, most creative, and longest distance. There are also horse drawn sleigh rides, a hot dog roast, and fun events for kids and adults alike. Take part in the candy scramble, or a game of hockey on the Buffalo Creek Nature Pond.
A pancake breakfast, a family movie, and a wide variety of other family-friendly activities make this a full day of entertainment. This event attracts hundreds of participants every year, and it's easy to see why. It adds an old-fashioned element of wintertime fun that brings people back.
