40th Annual Winter Carnival
For the first time in three years, the Luverne Music Boosters hosted a “live and in-person” Winter Carnival Saturday in the Luverne High School classic gym. According to Music Boosters president Heather Johnson, crowds were steady Saturday night, despite poor weather. She said 150 cakes — nearly all of them — were given away during the Cake Walk game, also an indicator of good attendance. The event is a major fundraiser for the booster club, which supports extracurricular activities in the school’s music department. Two years ago there was no Winter Carnival due to pandemic closures, and last year the fundraiser took to social media with an online auction.
