To continue the tradition of the oldest student-run Winter Carnival in the country, Middlebury kicks off its 90th annual Winter Carnival on Thursday night! Thursday also marks one of the most fun/dreaded holidays of the year: Valentines Day. But whether you have a steady beau or are just making eyes at your proctor crush, I think that this year’s Winter Carnival events can work to your advantage.
Lets start with Thursday: as Winter Carnival gears up, what better excuse to hang out with that special someone, than to enter as a team into the Snow Sculptures Competition on McCullough Lawn. Any sculpture of Cupid will have my vote this year. And as the night falls, what could be more romantic than a kiss by the bonfire under a sky full of fireworks! Oh, and don’t forget to show off your stellar dance moves at Orange Crush (remember, there’s no school Friday so you can stay out all night!)
