The Gift Shop and Headquarters offers maps and information about the Carnival and serves as a central planning resource for visitors and residents.  The Gift Shop offers a variety of logo items for sale including shirts, hats, balsam pillows, magnets, beverage glasses and more. Videos will be featured on screen for people to watch and learn about carnival and local lore. Winter Carnival buttons and posters designed by famous "Doonesbury" cartoonist, Garry Trudeau, from this year and previous years will be available as well.
