The first Richmond Hill Winter Carnival took place in February of 1969. It was organized by a group of neighbours who wanted to bring their community together for some winter fun. Back in ’69 you could have enjoyed a snowmobile ride through the park, skating on the Mill Pond, and a juicy burger while chatting with your neighbour. Carnival has taken place at the Mill Pond Park ever since.
