Autumn is closing out in the North Country, and as Winter approaches, so does the anticipation of the coming holiday season. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and that marks the first weekend of An Adirondack Christmas on Main Street. Every year it grows bigger and better, and it succeeds because it’s the right thing in the right place at the right time. It’s what everybody imagines an old fashioned holiday would be in a quaint mountain town. Fortunately, that’s exactly what we’ve got. People find a simpler, more personable atmosphere, and they get a break from the hectic, overpopulated and smothering commercialism of Christmas in the city. Many of the things that make An Adirondack Christmas on Main Street special are free. Folks can enjoy the essence of an old time holiday, and focus on building those memories.
