Town plans for Teddy Roosevelt Weekend

NEWCOMB The Town of Newcomb will be holding its annual Teddy Roosevelt Celebration Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8 and 9. Come celebrate the life and times of Theodore Roosevelt, especially his connection to Newcomb.

Join us in a weekend of fun that includes an Adirondack Craft Fair featuring artisans specializing in hand woven baskets, hand carved song birds, quilts, photographs, balsam gifts, rustic furniture and so much more! Newcombs Mountain Quilters will also be hosting a drop-in quilting bee where you can use your creativity to assemble a 9 patch quilt block that will be used to make lap robes benefiting High Peaks Hospice.

Events are scheduled all weekend so bring the entire family! There is truly something for everyone! Enter our TR Naturalist Challenge or 5K Ty Yandon Memorial Foot Race and win great prizes! Feeling adventurous? Hike up Goodnow Mountain, or take a wagon ride back to the Great Camp Santanoni for a guided tour. Free pony rides and puppet show for the kids! Enjoy Adirondack music, food, demonstrations and historical tours of Newcomb and dont forget the best FIREWORKS in the Adirondacks at dusk!
