Music fest to focus on lake's ecology

LAKE GEORGE -- Regional musicians will be performing in Sundays Lake-a-Palooza Festival for Lake Awareness, an event intended to show support for the lakes ecological health, according to event organizer James Hood of the Lake George Association. The event is set to take place Sun. Aug. 24 from 1 to 8 p.m. at Judds Tavern, 163 Canada St., Lake George Village. Scheduled to perform for the free event are Chuck Kelsey, Live Without Annette, Phil Camp, Deja Blue, Jonathan Newell Duo and Day in the Life. Hood said the event is being held to raise awareness of the issues facing Lake George and of the work his non-profit group is conducting to protect the lake. There is a whole generation of young adults who are passionate about Lake George and its protection, said Hood. Lake-a-Palooza is not a fundraiser. Its the start of a grass-roots movement. In addition to the musical entertainment, LGA staff members will be on-hand to talk about the lake . Topics will include Lake Georges water quality, invasive species and the West Brook Conservation Initiative, which is a major project to reconstruct pollutant-filtering wetlands on the site of the former Gaslight Village in Lake George. Radio Lake George will broadcast the event live over the web at www.radiolakegeorge.com. For more information, call the LGA office at 668-3558.
