continued Just watch out for mother moose and their calves, and the testosterone-fueled rutting males.
In the midst of the Festival, a new event will not so quietly march in and take its place. It’s a Moose-Calling contest, the first ever to be held in the Adirondack Mountains and one of only a few staged around the country. Naturalist and author Ed Kanze will be the contest master of ceremonies and one of the official judges.
This festival will mark the first Indian Lake Moose-Calling Contest, where contestants do their best to imitate the moos and barks of the animals.
There will also be many child- and family-friendly activities and vendors around town for the weekend.
