FAIRBANKS-A special event is getting underway tonight at the Fairbanks Curling Club. The Annual International Bonspiel starts tonight. The Bonspiel is in its 79th year and runs through Sunday.

Last year was super heroes but this year will be a jungle theme. So think Lion King and George of the Jungle. There will be a DJ tonight and Friday and live entertainment on Saturday night.

There are 12 women's rinks and 32 men's rinks among the competitors in the four divisions. A-D for the men and A-C for the women. The competition runs throughout the day and night. The finals start Sunday at 1 pm.
