This year's Winter Carnival will feature the weekend's traditional events inspired by the theme "A Very Grimm Carnival," a tribute to the Grimm Brothers' dark fairy tales, Winter Carnival Council co-chair Mandy Bowers '14 said.
While the council hoped to revive previously canceled events, as of press time, a second year of unseasonably warm weather prompted the cancellation of the campus-wide snow sculpture contest and the Carni Classic, a cross-country ski race on the Hanover Country Club golf course.
On Thursday evening, Winter Carnival opened with ceremonies on the Green.
