Ticonderoga Arts, historical and business organizations have joined to create the “Ticonderoga Area Summer.”
The “summer” is a collection of events and programs that includes activities for both children and adults, from fireworks and carnivals, to art classes and programs, concerts and theatrical performances, historical events and more.
Events are being promoted by the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative as well as the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.
““We are excited by the wide variety of cultural and fun events that so many different organizations in the Ticonderoga area have planned during the summer for both young people and adults,” said Vincent Smith, chairman of the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative.
To promote the activities the arts initiative has distributed maps of the arts, cultural and historic sites in Ticonderoga as well as information cards with a schedule of events.
