Competition starts at noon, closing out the Raquette Lake Winter Carnival weekend. Sunday evening bring the kids out for a Skate Party at the Long Lake Geiger Arena at Mt. Sabattis Recreation Center. Youth and adults alike enjoy skate night favorites such as limbo, red-light green-light, skate races, speed skate, couples skate and DJs Dan and Pat will be helping us groove into the night from 6 to 10 p.m.

Have a day of rest in honor of President’s Day on Monday, Feb. 18 because you will need it to power through the rest of this Winter Wacky Week in Long Lake.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19 at noon, there will be a Youth Survivor Event at the Geiger Arena. Youth are invited to build a snow shelter, participate in an obstacle course and play a game of Man Hunt. Every survivor needs nourishment, so they’ll round out the day with a bonfire and a feast of pizza.

On Tuesday evening, Cindy Black will be hosting an envelope-making craft class at 7 p.m. in the Long Lake Town Hall. Contact 624-3077 for more information.
