The 38th Annual White Pass Winter Carnival is set for Saturday and Sunday March 5 and 6 complete with a torchlight parade and fireworks. Spokesperson Kathleen Goyette says it's a great time to have family fun in the mountains. Because of concerns about the pandemic carnival games and face painting will not be available but the kids obstacle course will be open in the base area.

Your kids will love the giant snow castle and the cool sculptures

The highlight of the weekend is the giant snow castle with a medieval theme. More than 2 and a half stories tall with 6 to 7 thousand square feet of tunnels and slides for the kids to ride tubes off the castle which is free. There's cool snow sculptures. Goyette says it takes more than a week to build the large castle so work is underway right now. She says they're even making snow to help with the construction.
