Snowshoe competition is one of the events being planned for the Brant Lake Winter Carnival, a new event —scheduled for Saturday Feb. 9 — that is expected to feature a roster of activities for family fun.
continued The family-oriented fun is to include a dunking booth, an Adirondack storyteller, and an musical group, perhaps the Zucchini Brothers.
Chestertown’s parking an issue
Also, it was reported that Chestertown’s newly enacted street parking ordinance, prohibiting parking within 40 feet of driveways and intersections, was rescinded at last week’s town board meeting. Business owners raised concerns at the meeting that the new parking prohibition would eliminate two-thirds of the available parking in town and discourage commerce.
It was noted that the town is now seeking a study of Main Street — including parking, pedestrian issues, safety and convenience, from the Adirondack-Glens Falls Transportation Council — and recommendations will be made to the town.
Upcounty food fest a success
Business Alliance officials also noted that the group’s recent Taste of the Tri-Lakes event was quite successful, with about 200 people attending and $1,330 raised to be divided between the Alliance and the Chestertown Rotary, which sponsored the tandem event of the Chestertown Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Thanks were expressed to Natural Stone Bridge & Caves proprietors for their donation of amethyst crystal that was auctioned off, and to North Warren girls basketball team players who helped children prepare s’mores, as well as to the restaurants who participated by preparing food that the attendees sampled.
