TMR Recommedations

With over 200 events scheduled in this three-block town, McCall will be bursting at the seams for this mid-winter ruckus.  Inspired out of boredom in the 1920s when residents put together a mid-winter event to combat the dreary cold doldrums of winter.  The McCall Winter Carnival was first held in the 1960s, and this year it’s a 10-day menu full of fun for the whole family.       

The McCall Winter Carnival is known as a Celebration of All Things Winter, and every year takes on a new theme.  This year’s McCall Winter Carnival theme is, “It’s A Kid’s World.”

With plenty of activities to choose each day from comedy shows, monster dog-sled pulls, karaoke, bingo, theatrical plays, Olympic figure skating shows to snow bike and snowmobile races.  Along with downhill ski racing and three dog-sled races.  A children’s torchlight parade.  Even a BSU vs USC hockey game.
