The 2013 Moonlighter’s Long Lake Winter Carnival gears up and gets off the ground on Saturday, Jan. 19.
The event leads off with a Snowmobile Parade and coronation of the King and Queen of the Moonlighter’s Snowmobile Club at Mount Sabattis.
Events are slated throughout the day including the popular Cardboard Sled Race at 1 p.m.
Other events for the Winter Carnival include Adult Golf Drive, 1-shot Basketball, Kids Games, Ladies Frying Pan Toss (a perennial crowd favorite that has people on the edge of their seat) and the Broom Ball Tournament. There are cash prizes for all events. The day rounds out with a bonfire and fireworks.
The Long Lake Fire Department will be serving hot dogs and chili. There will be a raffle for an iPad mini or a gas card. Purchase raffle tickets to support the Long Lake Fire Department Building Fund and win a great prize.
The Long Lake Little Bus is available to shuttle folks to and from the Mt. Sabattis Recreation area to ease up the congestion at the Parking Area. Call for a free ride starting at noon until last call — call 323-5000. This bus will shuttle folks around the area as long as it’s in Long Lake.
Additional parking and bus stops will be available at the Long Lake Central School lot, the Town Hall and the Long Lake Town Beach. Mt. Sabattis Recreation Area offers warm building, ice skating, sledding, free Wi-Fi, and AT&T cell phone service.
