Laconia Sled Dog Derby kicks off
A bunch of fresh snow is bound to help out an annual New Hampshire sled dog race that’s scheduled for this weekend.
Organizers said the lack of good snow was to blame for postponing the World Championship Sled Dog Derby in Laconia last month.
More than 30 sled dog teams are participating in the event, which is scheduled to run through Sunday.
Last year’s derby was postponed twice due to a lack of snow and was not held until the start of March.
The unlimited dog race is about 15 miles long and the six-dog race is about six miles long.
