Visit North Conway, NH on Victoria Day Weekend and be ready for some very special kindness

North Conway, NH – While the Canadian maple leaves you see in North Conway, NH retailers’ windows mean “Bienvenue/Welcome”, they also signify special offers for Canadian visitors coming over Victoria Day weekend, May 17-19, 2013.  Mt Washington Valley is rolling out the red carpet for Canadian visitors coming to celebrate Victoria Day weekend in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.  Special Lodging packages and tent sales/retailer offers will be found among Mt Washington Valley’s 200 tax-free outlets, boutiques, and stores.  Look forward to some special kindness as the 2nd Annual Kindness Festival gets underway throughout the weekend including a free day of adventure at Cranmore Adventure Park, , free concerts, give-aways, and plenty of random acts of kindness throughout the weekend.  It’s Mt Washington Valley’s way of welcoming our neighbors from the North for Victoria Weekend.  Find all the details in one easy website:
