News to Know Around Lake George This Week
The E-Bike Conversation Continues for the Warren County Bikeway
Warren County is considering a pilot program to allow e-bikes on the Warren County Bikeway next spring, reports The Post Star. Among advocates to use the electric-powered bikes on the popular path is Connor Morgan of the Lake George Electric Bike Company, which rents out e-bikes.
E-bikes are affordable, easy to use, are generally not louder than regular bikes, and they can provide some much-needed assistance for users who may be working with an injury or who are older.
Adirondack Balloon Festival & Americade a Fall-Filled Success
With two of the Lake George region’s biggest annual events happening on the same weekend, for the first time, and the pandemic still on-going, area officials appear to have been cautiously optimistic about how the Adirondack Balloon Festival and Americade would go.
The recent events, according to Inform NY, went incredibly well, both in terms of safety/accidents (roads stayed safe), and with regard to COVID (no new cases appear to have stemmed from either festival). Both events scaled back some of their regular activities and features, but overall fan reaction to these changes was favorable and optimistic. It will be interesting to see what 2022 brings!
1st Lake George Area Renaissance Festival Planned
Moose Hillock Camping Resort in Fort Ann has announced a Renaissance Festival to take place October 7 to 10. Guests can expect kings and queens, knights and nobles, fairies and elves, and pirates and peasants. You do not have to dress up, although event organizers encourage it.
