Adirondack Events: July 23-25, 2010

County Fairs, Farmers' Markets and fresh produce are a sign of the season. Carnival rides are not the only reason to go, though my son would beg to differ.

If it rains take in the Wild Center in Tupper Lake or the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake or one of the many concerts or live performances happening! Enjoy!
