We are not the type of family that just hikes, swims and sails. We enjoy a variety of events and activities. My family has found that each town in the Adirondacks has its own special charm. It can be difficult to decide which activity to attend. Lake Placid has a summer full of events and activities to add to our busy schedule from from live music to mini-triathlons. There is always something to keep our multi-aged family active and outside.
Here are just a few that I highlight in my Adirondack Family Time™ guidebook, Adirondack Family Time™ Tri-Lakes and High Peaks:Your Four Season Guide to Over 300 Activities (with GPS coordinates)
Songs of Mirror Lake takes place each Tuesday in the newly revamped Mid’s Park bandshell on Main St. The summer schedule is July 29:Reggae Night with The Alchemystics, August 5: Funk Night with the Lee Boys, August 12: Jamgrass Night with The Deadly Gentlemen. These free, outdoor concerts take place at 7 pm so bring a chair or blanket and enjoy the view of Mirror Lake. The Lake Placid Sinfonietta hosts its Park Concert Series the next day, Wednesdays also at Mid’s Park bandshell. The last scheduled event for the summer is August 6: “Dancing the Night Away.” The rain location is St. Agnes Church. (For the trivia buff: Mid’s Park is named, not because of it’s location in the middle of the village, but for Mildred (Mid) Uihlein the person instrumental in saving this bit of green space that has become a central place for relaxation and the arts.)
