The Grand Junction Lion Club holds its annual parade at 1 p.m. down Main Street and carnival at 5 p.m. at Two Rivers Convention Center.
If you don’t have your carnival tickets yet, look for Lions members along the parade route or pop into Two Rivers Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as members set up for the carnival.
Prize drawings begin almost as soon as the carnival starts.
Ticket books range in price from $10–$250. The more tickets you purchase the better your chances are of winning prizes from among the nearly $30,000 worth of items the Grand Junction Lions Club will award. Plus, ticket books also come with coupons to local businesses.

Tonight’s the night
The late night TV scene shifts with the debut of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, who replaces comedian Jay Leno.
Fans of late night shows may remember Leno was temporarily replaced by Conan O’Brien several years ago, but that change didn’t last long before O’Brien was off NBC and Leno was back in his 10:30 p.m. seat.
Seth Meyers, who, like Fallon, is an alum of “Saturday Night Live,” takes over the Late Night desk from Fallon on Monday, Feb. 24.
