Fall Festival Weekend Sat October 6th

 
The Town of Long Lake announces the Fall Festival Weekend on Saturday, October 6, 2018. This all day event includes the Harvest Craft Fair, Octo-BEAR-Fest and the Pumpkin Drop.
 
The Harvest Craft Fair will be held at the Long Lake Town Hall from 10a.m. to 4p.m.  Hand made goods from vendors will be available including:  herbal spice mixes, homemade chip and dip bowls, bread and soup mixes, soy candles, handcrafted glass, balsam pillows, children’s books, table runners, wooden bowls, fish and duck decoys, mixed media art, jewelry and more.
 
Octo-BEAR-Fest will be held at Hoss’s Country  Corner from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Donation admission will benefit Randy’s Patient Assistance Fund at the Glens Falls Hospital.  Funds raised offsets co-pays, prescription drugs and gas and lodging expenses, all which can add up in the North Country. At times patients must travel over 100 miles one way for cancer treatment.  These funds go directly to those in need to ensure that patients spend time taking care of themselves while undergoing cancer treatment. 
 
Events at Octo-BEAR-Fest include: raffles, drawings for donated items.  Sara Winter, of the national touring group “The Chainsaw Chix”  will be doing chainsaw carvings of animals which will also be for sale. All participating vendors booth fees will be donated to Randy’s Patient Assistance Fund.  There will be food sold by Fat River Foods, The Park. Donated craft brews will be sold throughout the day in the beer garden.  Live Music will fill the day with bands hailing from all over the north east boasting local Long Lake talent and a band from Vermont. 
 
At 2 p.m. look for the Pumpkin Drop at 1156 Main Street, the former site of the Blarney Stone, located between Hoss’s Country Corner and the Long Lake Diner.  Paul Rasmussen Builders has donated the use of his Genie lift to send one brave soul over 40 feet in the air to drop pumpkins on the ground below. Pumpkins are launched to splat on the ground.  Special thanks to John and Jackie Heron for the use of their property for this event.
 
Fall can be an unpredictable time of year, sometimes cold, sometimes warm.  Be prepared for both.  On a cool October day warm up by fire pit or grab some warm drinks and food from our food and beverage vendors.
