The event is to showcase the wide variety of goods, services and entertainment that characterize the region.
Dan Berggren and Ed Lowman will be performing original Adirondack folk music, fine food is to be provided by Willows Bistro of Warrensburg as well as the beloved Stony Creek Inn.
Various artisans will be on hand, selling or demonstrating their work — including wool spinning by the Serendipity Spinners, plus silver jewelry and stained-glass stepping stones on sale. Authors will be at the event for book-signing.
Local farms are also to be represented with products including eggs, poultry, goat cheese, vegetables and maple items.
Nearby, Adirondack Ambiance gallery —which features paintings, carved wood sculpture and rustic furniture by Anne and Al Rohe — will be hosting several other artisans on their lawn.
One memorable way to experience this expo is to arrive at the event via a vintage railroad car. An area chamber of commerce is booking transportation for a limited number of passengers aboard the Saratoga & North Creek Railway on July 27, leaving the Saratoga train station at 10 a.m. and returning at 3:18 p.m.. The special ticket price includes lunch vouchers and a raffle ticket. Advance registration with prepayment is required. For details, call Perky at 623-9305.
Pets are safest at home
June 21 is the official first day of summer, which routinely means very warm weather. Readers are asked to remember that leaving pets in vehicles is extremely dangerous.
Nationwide, veterinary hospitals see an increase in heat-related illness as soon as the prevailing temperatures climb over 85.
Even leaving the windows cracked open for air will not prevent temperatures inside one’s car from climbing to dangerous levels for your pet. With the windows barely open, a car or truck will still heat up to 120 degrees or so. Your canine companions are indeed more comfortable at home.
