Lite Up the Village in Lake George
Friday and Saturday, November 24 & 25, 2023,
What better place is there to kick off the holiday season than the shores of beautiful Lake George? Each year, the Village comes together to present one of the magical and dazzling events of the holidays—Lite Up the Village!
Ice Castle USA’s “Winter Realm” will open on Friday Winter Realms and is sure to be a wintertainment destination with all the magic that Ice Castles captured, but more weather resilient.
Saturday’s events include live music by the Newell Family, Matt Donnelly, and Susie Q, the popular Ugly Sweater Contest, carriage rides, and bounce houses. Hot chocolate will be available all day. After 6, watch the lighting of thousands of LED lights throughout Shepard Park followed by fireworks over the lake.
Then, a giant holiday light parade of fire trucks and engines accompanied by floats will coursing down Canada Street, heralding the arrival of Santa’s and the official holiday season kick-off. At the Lake George Firehouse, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will greet eager children and serve refreshments.
All events are free and will be held weather-permitting.

Adirondack Center for Writing Presents
Four New York Poets Featured in “Postcard Poems” Broadside Series
Four New York State poets were selected for ACW’s “Postcard Poems”: Jackie Braje, Joseph Bruchac, Laura Cordts and Sophie Morelli. Their poems were selected from over 100 submissions from across the state.
Each writer will have their poem featured on a 5×7-inch broadside, complete with custom artwork created by artists living in New York. Both writers and artists will be compensated for their work, and broadsides will be available for sale through ACW with proceeds going to support community programs.
A poetry broadside is an ephemeral and collectible small work of art featuring a poem printed on one side of a thick sheet of paper. Broadsides are sometimes signed by the poet and include illustrations or other visual design elements. They can be traded, sold online and at events, exhibited at galleries, fairs and community arts centers and collected by libraries.
All four broadsides will be released throughout the winter, with the first one launching in late November. They can be purchased individually or as a “subscription” (all four over time) HERE.
