Organizers postpone Boonville Festival
BY NICOLE A. HAWLEY
BOONVILLE — Boonville Snow Festival, originally scheduled for the upcoming weekend, has been postponed to Friday through Sunday, March 9-11, due to the recent unseasonably warm temperatures.
Sue Alger, treasurer of the festival’s Board of Directors, said today that warm temperatures and rain in the forecast has prompted members to delay the event for safety reasons.
“With rain and freezing rain, the weather is not conducive to having snowmobiles going 100 mph,” Alger said, adding that the half-mile oval track at the Oneida County Fairgrounds was currently in good condition.
This is to be the 11th year of the Boonville Snow Festival II event, which attracts snowmobile racers and enthusiasts from throughout the Northeast and Canada.
Racing in Boonville, the birthplace of the Adirondack Cup, began in the early 1960s, attracting more than 40,000 snowmobile enthusiasts. Racing ended in the late 1970s but was revived in 2007.
