"Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, focus your attention on the main event in the Copper Country. Making its 57th annual appearance in the center ring is the spectacular, the hilarious, 1983 Winter Carnival!"

A carnival barker announcing Winter Carnival does seem a bit far-fetched for the 80's, but in 1922, when the annual winter main event had its beginning, it was a one night, one ring circus show with the name The Ice Carnival. However, Winter Carnival did not merely begin in 1922; it began a smorgasborg of spectacular activities which is still with us today, involving not only the Tech campus, but the entire community as well. It began an animated time of year filled with talent, enthusiasm, and comedy. This spirit of fun and comedy is in the spotlight this year as the theme of "Icy Trips Through Comic Strips" takes us on a journey to the lighter side of life. [Excerpt from Editorial]
