Snow Festival Races Postponed to March 9-11-2/28/2018

Once again, Mother Nature played havoc in the North Country with unseasonable warm temperatures and rain, causing the Boonville Snow Festival Board to postpone the races scheduled this past weekend, February 23-25. The following statement was on the Snow Festival's Facebook page: "The Board of Directors have decided tonight (February 20) with the weekend forecast, we are POSTPONING the race until March 9-11. The track so far is holding up well and with colder temperatures next week, conditions will improve!" Watch next week's Boonville Herald for further updates, and also listen to WBRV "The Moose" radio station and/or visit the Snow Festival's Facebook page.
