Summer Has Arrived

Beachgoers are finding the refreshingly cool waters are warming comfortably (70s).

Summer has arrived. Every week flows into the next like the warm weather and the flood of events and activities that make up a new season in the Adirondacks. Last week, we celebrated Wounded Warriors with an American Legion golf tournament and the Adirondack Freedom March, organized by two local Norwich University students. Next, it’s the season’s first Farmer’s Market and the free Sunday Lakefront Concert Series.

Sunday Concerts on the Old Forge Lakefront are free,
with plenty of boat parking and lawn space available.

The strength of community shows through with the Kiwanis Paddle Classic and the continuing fundraising efforts to help the Strand Theatre survive the mandatory, costly conversion to digital projection. There is plenty of water from Spring rains, and that’s good, because we’re all about water.

Home base for all enjoying the Adirondack waters.

Our natural resources have always been the foundation of recreation here, and water is our most renewable resource. As the waterways heat up, so does activity in the Adirondack Summer.
