Visit Shepard Park All Summer Long for Free Music & Fireworks!

During a typical summer, Shepard Park on Canada Street in Lake George Village is a hotspot for free concerts, family-friendly events, and fireworks. 2020 is not a typical summer, though. The regularly-scheduled free entertainment has been canceled, but the park will still be open so visitors can enjoy the beautiful views.
