Center Harbor Skatefest February 16th
Sunday February 16th 11-3pm | Town Beach Area |
For the past four years, the crowds measured in the hundreds, even during the years with little snow and poor ice on Lake Winnipesaukee. In 2020, the ice looks great and we hope for lots more snow.
Local restaurants, businesses and churches are providing complimentary food, such as hot chili, hamburgers, hot dogs, coffee, hot chocolate and smores as part of the event. All events, food and beverages are free to the public.
The Center Harbor Fire Department hosts a bonfire during the event and a warming station will be available in the Town Pavilion. Local volunteers will clear a large skating area on the lake for public use, so all guests are encouraged to bring their skates for an afternoon of skating fun. (Note that all skating on the lake and Town rink is at your own risk).
