As some of you may know, Winter Carnival in Lake George is in full swing every weekend in February! Enjoy winter games, activities and if the weather is right – walk on the frozen lake! Winter Carnival is a great event for the whole family!

On Sunday the fun continues with pond hockey at 11 a.m., more ATV races, make your own sundaes in Shepard Park as well as karaoke and a “glacier” golf tournament!
