LAKE WALLENPAUPACK —The Chamber of the Northern Poconos announced that the Wally Ice Fest activities scheduled for Sunday, February 9 and 10 have been canceled due to the lack of ice/unsafe ice on Lake Wallenpaupack.

“Our decision was not arrived at lightly. Many individuals, organizations, and businesses decided jointly that the weather forecast, along with the present deteriorating conditions of the ice, made for an unsafe event and unsuitable conditions for a successful and memorable experience for all,”said a statement posted by the Wally Ice Fest 2019 committee. “We thank you all for your enthusiasm and your support, and we hope you understand our position that safety for everyone comes first in a matter such as this.”
