Spring in Lake George is Almost Here! 5 Signs Spring is Just Around the Bend

Maybe we’re fooling ourselves in the midst of these freezing cold temperatures, but we’re looking for early signs of spring here in Lake George. Don’t let Groundhog Phil ruin your weekend, here are 5 signs spring is just around the bend.

1. Winter Carnival Ends

The month long carnival has winter embedded in its name, but the last weekend of the Winter Carnival felt more like spring was in the air. It was even warm enough to cancel the car races. But the culmination of the Winter Carnival can only mean the end of February. What will March have in store for us?

2. Maple Sugaring Events

Spring marks the season for pure Adirondack maple products. Learn the craft of maple sugaring from many of the local masters in Upstate New York. Take home some locally produced maple syrup or candies.

3. Boating Season Is In the Air…at the Washing Station

On a different note, another sign of spring is marked by the established Lake George Park Commission boat inspection policy. This policy has been talked about in the local newspapers earlier this years and this spring marks its inception. The boat inspections will help prevent the spread of the five invasive species in Lake George by setting up inspections at six of Lake George’s launches.

4. Students Get Ready for Prom

Even though The Lake George High School prom isn’t until late-May, many high school students start planning for prom early. Limos need to be reserved. Hair appointments need to be made. Many high school students skip thinking about winter and plan for one of the biggest nights they will have this spring. And if you are a mom, prom isn’t over! Check out the Lake George and Saratoga Mom Prom charity event this spring!
