Strawberry Banke Museum's Puddle Dock Pond skating rink will be open for 4 months this season instead of only 3.

Last season was very successful and there weren't any complaints, so the Planning Board voted to extend the season by a month. The rink is expected to be operating November 1st to March 31st.

According to Seacoastonline.com, over 22,000 people visited the rink last year and when the rink was open, businesses reported an increase in business.
