INDIAN LAKE - Moose will be everywhere the weekend of Sept. 18 and 19. The first ever moose festival in New York State will find a home in Indian Lake on that weekend, announced festival chairperson Brenda Valentine.
Sponsored by the Town of Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce, the festival will stretch into the hamlets of Indian Lake, Sabael and Blue Mountain Lake and coincides with the 30th anniversary of the return of the moose to the Adirondack Park.
"The festival is designed to offer a purely Adirondack experience for everyone." said co-chair, Aaron Gadway. "This community-wide event features a host of Adirondack style and moose-oriented family fun activities."
Along with providing a glimpse of fall foliage, the festival will feature a host of events ranging from activities for children to guided hikes in hopes of catching a glimpse of the celebrated moose.
"Our goal is to build, enhance, and grow the attraction that Indian Lake possesses for both visitors and residents," said Valentine. "This event has great potential and couldn't take place in a more appropriate atmosphere."
All festival activities are free and most do not require advance registration. For more information, please visit www.indian-lake.com, or call 648-5636 or 648-5112.
