Get ready for Winter Carnival
Friday, February 15, 2013
The 21st annual Winter Carnival, hosted by the Merrimack Parks and Recreation Department and Parks and Recreation Committee, will be held at Wasserman Park from noon-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23.
With more than two feet of freshly fallen snow, we look forward to ideal wintery conditions to enjoy the lovely New England outdoors. Families will have an opportunity to enjoy a day of free activities, including the Ice Fishing Derby sponsored by the Lions Club, snowmobile rides sponsored by the Sno-Buds Snowmobile Club, snow art sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Committee and much more.
Join us in support of our local nonprofit organization. Delicious snacks and refreshments will be available in the function hall. Members of the Sno-Buds Snowmobile Club will be available to answer questions on their club, safe riding and where to find snowmobile trails in the area. The Southern NH Flying Eagles will show their airplanes doing amazing aerial demonstrations and share information on their club. Pete Desmaris, of the Independent School of Karate, will highlight his students in an exciting karate demonstration, and the 4-H Dog Club “Pups R Us” will bring adorable canine guests for an informative obedience demonstration.
We invite you to participate and/or come out and enjoy this wonderful event with your family. Please call 882-1046 for event updates or to register your group. For updated information, visit www.merrimacknh.gov/town/departments/parks_and_recreation/upcoming_events.
