Lake George may be getting a new attraction next winter.
According to the Post Star, a “Winter Wonderland” business is eying the Charles R Wood park as a seasonal location in Winter 2021. Mayor Robert Blais won’t specifically say what the business is but did say it would be open January-February. The park would be reserved for four months for set-up and take-down time.
Those worried about the Adirondack Christkindlmarkt festival which has taken up that space for the last two years will be able to continue on Beach Rd not too far away.
The strangest comment, in my opinion, is that “Blais said the winter wonderland attraction would use an enormous amount of water…in excess of what the village uses in one year.” I’m assuming it’s for snow purposes but that sounds like a lot of snow.
The hope is to make Lake George more of a 365-day location instead of just the peak time in the spring and summer months. The Post Star said that “Blais said he would not say more, but said it has been a very popular attraction in other parts of the country.” Hm…wonder what it could be.
