The annual Vernon Winter Carnival kicked off on Friday and opening weekend featured the traditional parade.

This year, many of the floats that wound their way through the streets of Vernon on Saturday were done up like pirate ships to celebrate the pirate carnival theme.

Many participants in Saturday’s Vernon Winter Carnival Parade embraced the pirate theme.
