Vernon Winter Carnival was heavy on the pyrotechnics at the Family Fun Park in the parking lot of Kal Tire Place Friday night.
As dusk set in around 5:30 p.m., a crowd formed a circle in the Fun Park to watch performers from Kelowna’s Kinshira Entertainment put on a fire dancing show, twirling various flaming torches and staffs in the air.
At 6 p.m., Carnival-goers turned their attention to the skies above the Kin Race Track grounds to take in a spectacular fireworks show.
