Wally Ice Fest in Pike County canceled


PALMYRA TOWNSHIP, PIKE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – This year’s Wally Ice Fest in Pike County has been canceled due to safety concerns.

The ice on Lake Wallenpaupack has been deteriorating due to mild temperatures the last few days. Last year, it was cold enough to have the ice festival. Hundreds of people turned out to the frozen lake for a hockey tournament.

Businesses along the lake usually benefit from the festival. Restaurants along the lake still plan to be open with some live music this weekend.
