February 2017 in Bay Roberts

Bay Roberts Winter Carnival 2017

This weekend marks the 21st Winter Carnival in Bay Roberts. The Special Events Committee tried to track the weather before announcing the carnivals date in hopes of favorable weather. Despite tracking the forecast, weather conditions did not cooperate , mild temperatures and high winds forced us to make the decision to postpone some of our activities, mainly the Family Fun Day on Goose Pond. Ice conditions are out of our control and the safety of the participants is paramount when considering moving ahead with a event.


There are still activities going on throughout the carnival including free staking, bowling and a community breakfast at the 50+ Club tomorrow morning!!
