RED LODGE-  Despite the near-record cold temperatures, that didn’t stop the fun in Red Lodge today. Around 900 people braved the cold for the biggest party of the season, the 2019 Winter Carnival, which went on as scheduled.

The theme this year was the World of Wizardry. The magic was brought to life with characters from all the classics such as Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and the Wizard of Oz.

The always thrilling cardboard classic was a big draw, with some stunning and imaginative creations. Other events today included a costume contest, live music by The Well and The Rail Jam, and the grand finale happening at 7:00 p.m., which is the torchlight parade and fireworks that cap this year’s festivities.
