Join us for our annual Memorial Day celebrate as the Arts Center presents The Great American SongBook in concert across the park. The “Great American Songbook”, sometimes referred to as “American Standards”, is the uniquely American collection of popular music from Broadway and Hollywood musicals prevalent from the 1920s to 1960s. Familiar composers include George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, and Richard Rodgers. Singers include Frank Sinatra, Al Jolson, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme and so many others. This timeless music offered hope of better days during the Great Depression, built morale during two world wars, helped build social bridges within our culture, and whistled beside us during economic growth. We defended our country, raised families, and built a nation to these songs. This promises to be a concert you don’t want to miss!
$10 general admission
May is the true beginning of spring when local residents start thinking about getting their boats ready for the up coming season. Flowers are being planted, summer residences opened for the season and the annual Memorial Day Parade is planned. Each year the Town of Long Lake recognizes the sacrifices of the veterans who have lived in Long Lake with a parade, a ceremony for those who died at sea and a ceremony at the cemetery. The parade ends at the Viet Nam Memorial with the laying of a wreath.
As the water warms up canoers start enjoying one of the many lakes for early season paddling.
Motorcycles make Long Lake a central destination on their tour of the Adirondacks. Long Lake is the crossroads of the Adirondacks where Route 30 connects with Route 28N.

Hamilton County Tourism and Aububon NY are pleased to present the 9th Annual Birding Festival in Hamilton County June 7th – 9th with Dr. Bruce Beehler an ornithologist and vice-president of Conservation International’s Melanesia Center for Biodiversity Conservation (CBC). Bird watching is a celebrated Adirondack experience. In the Adirondack Wild, it is marked by the Adirondack Birding Festival, held annually in June. Nesting season comes late in our mountains because of the altitude and latitude.
Among the rare boreal birds found here are Bicknell’s thrush, spruce grouse, American three-toed woodpeckers and many kinds of raptors and water birds. For a rewarding experience, book a bird-watching trip with a licensed guide.

Don’t miss this unique, magical, and moving theatrical event!
