How to find things to do!

This is an event hunting tutorial!  We know we have a lot of activities and events happening between Long Lake and Raquette Lake and our regional communities.  At Parks and Rec we work to compile as much info as we can into one calendar.  

On-line Monthly Calendar

 

We have an on-line version of the calendar – it changes, if there are updates, we can update them.  We work with our community resources to post info as it comes into our office and we do our best to keep up with all the happenings in and around.  If you have an event you’d like posted to the calendar email longlakeevents@gmail.com.  

Alex Smith will be playing LIVE on the Long Lake Beach on Friday, July 7th at 6pm!  It’s Free!  

We also have a monthly calendar put together by the Parks & Recreation office.   

On Line Monthly PDF Calendar 

This is distributed to area businesses, including any local places with brochure racks.  This typcially comes out the day before the end of the month.  We ask anyone looking to be included in the monthly calendar to submit to us by the 2nd to last Tuesday of the month.

We also do the “weekly” calendar which is distributed to area newspapers so we can make sure people outside of our communities can see it.  

We also have the Mountain Times which comes out in July and August and it features write ups about upcoming events and advertisements for our local businesses.  

We do the best that we can to include everything, but sometimes we miss something on one that is listed on another.  Just let us know and we’ll fix it as fast as we can!  

So please check our calendars and you don’t see something, give us a call and we’ll do our best to help you out! 

And here is the Long Lake Central School Calendar

Avert a cabin fever crisis at the Long Lake Town Hall on March 10, 2012 at 8pm when Certified Hypnotist Cris Johnson hits the stage and takes the audience on a journey not to be forgotten! It promises to be an evening of good, clean, hilarious fun and guess what? You just might be the star!

Past performances include programs for General Motors, United Airlines, Bank of America, The Home Depot, Verizon Wireless and many more.

This show promises to delight audiences with Cris’s unique approach to hypnotism. Cris starts the show by dispelling the myths about hypnosis, alleviates the fears of the audience and then the fun begins. Cris assures folks no one will be embarrassed, everyone will have a great time and applaud for their friends and family because they will be amazed at what unfolds on stage.
