Indian Lake SnoCade on the way

INDIAN LAKE -- It's time to think about winter fun in Indian Lake. The town at the hub of miles of snowmobile trails is starting its inaugural SnoCade during Presidents' Week Feb. 14-23.

During this fun event the 29th Indian Lake Winter Fest will be expanded, making the three hamlets of Blue Mountain Lake, Sabael and Indian Lake the center of fun for all things related to "making tracks."

As it has been for nearly three decades in Indian Lake, the festivities will begin with an assortment of winter fun. The Annual Winterfest Parade will kick it off, followed by numerous indoor and outdoor activities including a two-day Winter Wonderland Craft Show and Tricky Tray, Firemen's Breakfast, the popular torchlight skiing with fireworks and more.

There will be events to appeal to every member of the family from snowshoe softball, snow horseshoes and snowmobile rides to snowshoe hikes, along with fun indoor events like a circus, snowmobile vendors and a Flea and Swap Market.

Additional events this year include children's crafts, an ice rescue demonstration, snowmobile radar timing, stand-up comedy and live music at the theatre and a snowmobile hill climb.

There will be_ many adventures, including the SnoCade Scavenger Hunt. Participants register for $3 each and have a week (Feb. 14-22) to capture an assortment of 10 pictures, competing for the $50 Pine's Hardware Store Grand Prize, not to mention the thrill of being able to say, "Been there, took the picture," as adventurers travel through the three hamlets.

SnoCade is a celebration of snowmobiling and winter activities in the Adirondacks, centered in Indian Lake. It is the time to "make tracks" to Indian Lake. Check the calendar of events, join in fun and find more at facebook.com/snocade.
