Adirondack Calendar of Events: What to do February 25-27, 2011

By Diane Chase

Whew, snow is coming down fast and furious so please be careful on the roads. The good news? It’s snowing! The bad news? There is no bad news when it snows. There is plenty of Adirondack family activities to do indoors or out. Enjoy the weather.

What to do with kids? Best bet for the High Peaks area is to watch the Empire State Games, take an evening sleigh ride or enjoy a mountainful of activity as Big Tupper concludes its 50th anniversary celebration. For an older set try Pendragon’s production of Completely Hollywood.

Inlet is celebrating its annual Frozen Fire and Lights, Lake George and Long Lake will conclude winter carnival. There is so much to do so get out and be active!

Be careful. It is a light snow but has been coming down steadily since this morning. I'd say there is about 8" of new snow. Good for the slopes!
