A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

“Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!” Broadway’s greatest farce is fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written!

An Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts production. To purchase tickets, visit www.adirondackarts.org or call 877-752-7715.

Weekend on the Waterfront

The Town of Long Lake in partnership with the Long Lake Association and the Long Lake Artisan’s Cooperative announces a weekend of free family-friendly events celebrating Long Lake and the waters of the Raquette River!

A weekend you won’t want to miss!

Float Night and Cardboard Box Boat Face-Off!

5-8pm, Long Lake Town Beach

Wear you life jacket and bust out your floaties for one night only! Lifeguards will be on duty and WON’T yell at you for wearing flotation devices!

Float around the beach, then get building your ultimate cardboard box boat for the face-off! Cardboard and duct tape will be available from 5-7pm for boat-building (but feel free to build ahead of time–there’s lots of cardboard at the dump!) while ADK DJ Glen LeBlanc spins tunes and runs awesome games.

Face-off takes place at 7pm where we’ll see who can sink the other boats and be the last boat floating!

Big prizes for top three boats (free airplane rides, kayak rentals, and ice cream!).
