What to do: Adirondack Calendar of Events February 11-13, 2011

I now have two year-round calendars completed, High Peaks Events and Central Adirondacks Events ( I do listen to suggestions!) but I will still do the weekly post.  I am going to complete the Champlain Valley and Southern Adirondack version but still do a weekend roundup of events. It helps me find out unique family activities. Since I’m always looking for different things to do with my kids, I hope you find both calendars useful as well. Have a great weekend!
