Gore to host Harvest Fest

There is so much to do during the fall season here in the Adirondacks, and why let the tourists be the only ones to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us? People travel hundreds of miles to come here and enjoy our own paradise.

Gore Mountain Ski Center at 793 Peaceful Valley Road in North Creek, will be hosting their Harvest Fest from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 and Sunday, Oct. 13.

There is so much to see and do at this event — you can take a gondola or helicopter ride and enjoy the scenic view of the fall foliage or rent a bike and go for a downhill ride. Children will enjoy going for a pony ride, petting the animals, playing on inflatables or trying their skills out at rock climbing. This event is free, so check it out.

Fall Farm Tour approaching

Another great event is the Thurman Fall Farm Tour, and we have just learned that Andy Leblanc will be at Nettle Meadow Farms with a cider press. So grab some apples and watch them be turned into cider. Please gas up your vehicle before you head out, as there are no gas stations in Thurman.

There will be a pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Valley Road Maple Farm. At Toad Hill Maple Farm, located off High Street, Randy and Jill Galusha will be hosting the Thurman Fire Dept. serving up their chicken barbecue dinner from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Thurman Quilt Show, routinely a part of the Thurman Fall Farm Tour, is now seeking quilts from the past to be shown at the event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you have an old quilt you would like displayed, contact Avis at 623-9921.
