Did you catch the Raquette River Winter Experience on WPBS? We want to welcome you to the Town of Long Lake’s website. This past weekend was the Long Lake Winter Carnival as featured on the program, we had terrific winter events including broomball, Ladies Frying Pan Toss, and the first leg of the Adirondack Cardboard Box Racing Circuit.
If you are looking for a fun-filled weekend excursion to Long Lake we recommend the weekend of February 7th and 8th, 2014. Plenty of time to plan and get organized and make a winter weekend out of it. It is a Winter Fest Weekend featuring a Poker Run, a game played by car or snowmobile, Ice Fest and the Lake Eaton Ice Fishing Derby. Three events in one-weekend!
For the Poker Run players start off in cars or by snowmobile in Raquette Lake or Newcomb utilizing a network of community connector trails. Players gather stamps at participating local businesses and join in the dealing at the Long Lake Diner on Saturday, February 8th for the prizes. Highest hand wins. Plenty of doorprizes and souvenirs for participants.
