Adirondack Winter Carnivals Kick-Off February’s Line-Up of Festivals
I know it kills everyone to look for things to do every weekend. It looks like every corner of the Adirondacks is having some sort of “event” next month. Strange how the suffix “-stock” never made the list.
Given so many to choose from, I thought a map would help. Plus, I threw in a couple bonus Carnifests and a planning chart.

"The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) serves as the Adirondack Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) whose mission is to protect the Adirondack region from the negative impacts of non-native invasive species."
"Common causes of accidents are things such as hitting a rock or tree stump hidden beneath the snow cover, or travelling too fast and losing control and hitting a tree or other solid object, or being thrown from the vehicle."
"In 2012, lake stewards were posted at five launches around Lake George: Dunham's Bay, Norowal Marina, Hague Town Launch, Rogers Rock, and Mossy Point. Lake stewards recorded 6,972 boats during the 2012 season."
