ALTON, N.H. (AP) - Organizers have canceled the annual Winter Carnival on Alton Bay due to the impending snowstorm this weekend, and because of bad ice.

Carnival Committee Chair Roger Sample said Thursday because all of the recent snow, plus the weight of the trucks on the ice from last weekend’s fishing derby, the ice in the bay isn’t very good. He said the ice is slushy.

The carnival was to be held Sunday. There are no plans to reschedule it.

Heavy snow is expected in New Hampshire on Sunday.
