— As the Big Apple Circus has dazzled spectators in its opening week in Lake George Village, additional municipal parking has been arranged as the show is expected to attract thousands during the last week of its local engagement.

The acclaimed Big Apple Circus features world-class aerialists and acrobats, and has prompted rave reviews nationally for its creativity and artistic spectacle.

There is no on-site parking available at the Charles Wood Park site where the Circus’ “Big Top” and ticket office are located.

But two large lots owned by Fort William Henry and the Lake George Steamboat Co. will be available for public parking. The lots are adjacent to the circus grounds.

Additional parking will be available at the Off-Track Betting lot on state Rte. 9, the village’s Beach Road lot and the Million Dollar Beach parking lot. There may be a fee for the parking at these latter locations. Parking is also available throughout the Village at any metered spot.

All lots are within a five-minute walk to the circus, Lake george Village Mayor Robert Blais said. Performances are at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and Sunday at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The show is a little over two hours. Tickets, which start at $10, are available on site from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, at the Lake George Chamber of Commerce on Rte. 9, and Lake George Village Hall, and are available by calling (888) 541-3750 or at www.bigapplecircus.org.
