WHITEFISH - No matter how cold it gets this weekend, Whitefish Winter Carnival organizers say that the show must go on.
Whitefish Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kevin Gartland says the event has seen much colder weekends than what's forecast for Saturday, and no adjustments have been made to the carnival.
It all got started at 11 a.m. at the Whitefish City Beach with the Penguin Plunge, and it will be followed by the highly anticipated parade led by Wayne Newton.
Gartland tells us when it comes to the weather-the colder, the better for downtown Whitefish businesses.
"The nice thing about Whitefish is you've got somewhere to step inside and get warm any time you want to. As folks are getting ready for the parade at 3:00 p.m., they'll be inside and outside. When they get cold, they know what to do."
The Torchlight Parade and fireworks will start at 7 p.m. Saturday at Whitefish Mountain Resort.
