Holiday Village Stroll
Dec. 9-11/LAKE PLACID – A Lake Placid tradition, the Holiday Village Stroll is a family and couples weekend set in the fairy-tale winter wonderland. Stroll spans three days and includes events like a skating party, photos with Santa, free movie showing, and a Santa firetruck parade. Join in the Scavenger Hunt: While you’re strolling down Main Street, take the time to hunt for the hidden holiday symbols in select businesses’ windows. For a chance to win a prize, fill out and submit a form online, or pick one up from the Visitor’s Bureau and drop the completed form in Santa’s mailbox at Mid’s Park. There will be one winner picked for each of the following age groups; 13 and under, 14-20, and 21+. If you don’t have time to join Crafts at St. Agnes on Saturday, stop by the Visitors Bureau and pick up a kit to take home with you. These craft kits will include everything you need to make a fun and festive holiday craft. Don’ t forget to show us your finished project on social media! Woods Edge will be demonstrating their wood carving outside Adirondack Decorative Arts and Crafts throughout the weekend. Stop by and watch the magic happen!
