Lake George adds a new festival to its lineup of big events this fall season: Festival of the Lake. The first-ever Festival of the Lake will be a three-day celebration of Lake George from Fri, Sept 27, through Sun, Sept 29, to bring awareness about protecting the lake against invasive species, with all proceeds benefiting the S.A.V.E The Lake Initiative.
As part of the Ben & Jerry’s-sponsored celebration, a nighttime Flashlight 5k will liven up the streets of Lake George with the first-ever glow-in-the-dark 5k race. Racers will take to Canada Street through Lake George Village with glowing necklaces, bracelets and (for some) costumes. Local Chef Dave Britton (remember him from Springwater Bistro?) will bring his mobile brick pizza oven Pies on Wheels, The Barbecue Smokehouse‘s famous ribs will be on-site (and hopefully fried green beans) as well as other local vendors dotted throughout the festival.
Six live bands will play throughout the weekend, starting at 4pm on Friday night.
