Following tradition, Riverside Gallery will be holding craft demonstrations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
That evening, baroque music will prevail as the Adirondack Recorder Band plays selections from The Nutcracker, accompanied by a reading of the holiday story.
Sunday’s activities center around the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce’s annual Holiday Craft Fair, featuring the works of dozens of artisans, at Echo Lake Lodge.
A full schedule will be published in the Dec. 3 edition of the Adirondack Journal.
