Participants lit up the town with festive lights and decorations as part of the 13th Annual Country Christmas Tour, combining the spirit of Christmas with the character of the Adirondack Park. The tour was held Nov. 26 and 27.

"We want to send a special thanks to the contest sponsors, including Gadway Realty, Indian Lake Marina, Indian Lake Restaurant, Pines Country Store and an anonymous local business owner for their sponsorship."
