Downtown Glens Falls retailer 42 Degrees is set to host a glass pipe blowing competition, ADK Throwdown, from Monday to Friday, December 3 to 7, 2018.
Each day, two glass artists will be creating new work in the 42 Degrees studio at 23 Park Street. Visitors are invited to watch the artists in action during the day at no charge.
