No snow? No problem.
The third annual Ticonderoga WinterFest will go on today despite the most mild winter season in memory.
“Like many other winter carnivals in the North Country, this year’s unusual weather has thrown us a curve,” said Matthew Courtright, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce executive director. “We are still hoping to have sledding, snowshoeing and snowmobile rides, but clearly this depends on the weather. Think snow!”
The main sponsors for the day of outdoor activities are the town of Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, Ticonderoga Central Schools, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, Ticonderoga Kiwanis and the Adirondack Trailriders.
WinterFest activities will kick-off at 10:45 a.m. with a one-mile Snowman Fun Run, which will be a loop around downtown Ticonderoga finishing down Montcalm Street at the entrance to Bicentennial Park.
WinterFest will continue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. People are asked to sign in at the registration desk in the public parking lot next to the Elks Building and sign up for prizes donated by supporters.
