Winter Carnival canceled because of weather

Because of the unseasonable mild weather and the roller coaster of highs and lows in temperature this season, the annual Winter Carnival at Wasserman Park scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 20, has been canceled.

The ice on Lake Naticook isn’t stable enough for the Ice Derby, and with warm temperatures this week and rain forecasted on Saturday, there would not be enough snow to continue with other winter activities such as snowmobile rides, snowman making, the cardboard box sledding contest and more.For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 882-1046 or mcasparius@merrimacknh.gov.
