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.

(Large Map)
1. Colton Winterfest 2. Cancelled – Rotary Winter Carnival 3. Lake George Winter Carnival 4. Massena Winter Carnival 5. Canton Winterfest
6. McCauley Mt Winter Carnival 7. Saranac Lake Winter Carnival
8. Ogdensburg River Shiver 9. Empire State Winter Games
Indian Lake Winterfest 11. Raquette Lake Winter Carnival

14. Inlet Frozen Fire & Ice

February is Carnifest Month

May 17th, 2007 · No Comments · Adirondack Life

Will Durant rented a place on Raquette Lake. In the heart of the Adirondacks. During Halloween season. But something is amiss in this place. Halloween candy isn’t for sale. Children are less than eager to trick-or-treat. The townspeople say that years ago, someone had the bad idea of taking a walk through a local cemetery…

Adirondack Nightmare: A Spooky Tale in the North CountryThis fun, quick-read kids’s book also features three delicious and original Adirondack recipes, including the best michigan sauce recipe you’ve ever had. Yummm. You do know what a michigan is, don’t you? No, no, not the state. The food, silly! If you have never tasted a michigan, you simply must buy this book and make one (or two…or three…). WARNING: You’ll be hooked forever.

ADIRONDACK REGION, N.Y., February 7, 2007 – The Adirondack Park of New York state is a bird watching haven. All birds that migrate to the Adirondack region for the summer arrive by June.
