Adirondack Labor Day Celebrations

There are quite a few celebrations, festivals and events planned for this Labor Day Weekend.

Port Henry will start the celebration this evening with music and fireworks on Champ Beach with a Labor Day Parade down Port Henry's Main Street @ 1 pm will have a Quadricentennial theme.

Westport Marina celebrates its 43rd annual Lobsterfest Weekend with cardboard boat races, BBQ dinner and dacing. Sunday's Chix BBQ has been sold out but come for face painting, balloon art of the Kayak races.

Long Lake's Mt. Sabattis Pavilion will host a BBQ, music from the Fulton Chain Gang and fireworks.

For those interested in the Festivals, here are a few: The first annual Hobo Festival (read more about the music scene in Adirondack Almanack) which will take place on Depot Street in Saranac Lake not "the big rock candy mountain" and the Irish Festival which will include hay bale tossing and keg lifting. In my world that just spells "family reunion." To attend an Irish Hobo Festival would be just shaking branches off the family tree.

Other festivities are happening at the Old Forge's Beach on Sunday (fireworks) or in Lake Placid to the Olympic Car Show and Parade.
