Fri, September 08, 2017- Adirondack Canoe Classic
- 90 Miler Three Days of Adirondack Paddling The 90 Miler
Adirondack Canoe Classic is an amazing boat event (which
welcomes canoes, kayaks, and guideboats) held on the historic
"Highway of the Adirondacks" on the weekend after Labor
Day. The three-day, 90-mile, 275-boat race concludes at
the NYS Boat Launch on Lake Flower in Saranac Lake, welcoming
triumphant finishers and concluding with a ceremonial
dinner. While participants have the advantage of lighter
boats, pit crews, and trailering from the finish to start
lines each day, they are paddling, carrying, and camping
along the same chain of lakes, rivers and carries taken
by early European settlers and local Adirondack guides.
This is a continuous route from Old Forge, via the Moose
River through the Fulton Chain Lakes, to Raquette Lake,
then via the Raquette River to Forked Lake, Long Lake
and finally via the Stony Creek Ponds and the Indian Carry
to Upper Saranac Lake. The route then proceeds via Bartletts
Carry to Middle Saranac Lake and Lower Saranac Lake, and
finally, Lake Flower in Saranac Lake, the village. As
extensive as this route appears, it is only the first
leg of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, which stretches
all the way to Maine. There are over 500 competitors from
all over the world. The 90 Miler is open to all age groups
and classes, from professional to family recreational
there is a group for everyone

Oktoberfest at Whiteface Mt. Saturday,

oompah band and enjoys a tall mug of German beer. Oktoberfest
is a weekend-long celebration of Bavarian culture, with
authentic music, dancing, food and beer. But it's not
just about eating and drinking (not that there's anything
wrong with that). You'll find complimentary rides for
kids and adults, craft vendors and discounted trips on
the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface.
The views from up there will make it pretty clear why
Fall in the Adirondacks is something worth celebrating.
