The Raquette Lake Winter Carnival returns with two days of fun and wacky events for all ages!
The weekend kicks off on Friday, February 14th with a Pasta Dinner hosted by the Raquette Lake Softball Team at the Raquette Lake Fire Hall. Dinner is served at 5pm until it is sold out, so be sure to get there early to fuel up for the long weekend ahead and support a great group!
The carnival begins Saturday, February 15th at 10am with kids’ activities including a snowshoe contest, tire races, a balloon chase and sledding races. At noon, the ever popular Frying Pan toss will kick off followed by adult golf at approximately 2pm. Both events feature great cash prizes for winning competitors.
Great Camp Sagamore gets in on the action by offering two snowshoe expeditions both Saturday and Sunday at 10am. Check out all the details here. Great Camp Sagamore Expeditions
Also at 2pm, magician Jim Perry will be delighting children in the Raquette Lake Library. Jim Perry presents a fast paced show where fire, water, and silks vanish, appear and dance in astonishing and impossible illusions. Stop by the Raquette Lake Library to warm up and take part in this interactive show. The Raquette Lake Library will have cookies and hot chocolate throughout Saturday, and are looking for cookie donations to contribute to the delicious selection.
Saturday continues with a town wide tug of war contest and concludes with a bon fire and fireworks at dusk!
On Sunday, February 16th the Raquette Lake Ladies Auxiliary and the Raquette Lake Women’s Softball Team will host a pancake breakfast at the Raquette Lake Fire Hall from 10am-noon. The weekend will conclude with the ever popular Crosscut and Chainsaw Contest at noon.
