|The final preparations are in motion at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre|
as West Coast Amusements makes ready for their Friday opening
The big rigs began to arrive in town on Tuesday morning and since that time the parking lot at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre has begun to take on its familiar appearance of early May, as the West Coast Amusements Carnival arrives in town and set up shop at the McBride Street facility.

The West Coast Amusements Website also provides a guided tour of sorts of what Carnival goers may find as they wander the midway this weekend, with a look at some of the favourites that bring fans back year after year, as well as some of the new arrivals to challenge those who are not faint of heart!
It's all quiet today, but come Friday night the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre is going to look a little bit different, as residents of the North Coast take in the annual visit of the Carnival to Prince Rupert.
You can keep up to date on what's happening with the Carnival from the WCA Facebook page.
