Kids’ activities set for this weekend in Saranac Lake and Plattsburgh


Parents and caregivers looking for something fun to do with their children this weekend are in luck, as an array of children’s programs are slated for establishments in the Adirondack region, including Saranac Lake and Plattsburgh. These activities include a presentation of Disney’s Frozen Jr. at the Pendragon Theatre through July 31 in Saranac Lake, a PBS KIDS Day celebration at Mountain Lake PBS in Plattsburgh on July 30, and a Nature Writing and Drawing for Kids program at the Adirondack Center for Writing on July 30 in Saranac Lake.


Disney’s Frozen, Jr.:

This family-friendly show is presented by over twenty local students for the theatre’s Camp Pendragon Production.

A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood.

The show runtime is 60 minutes with no intermission, and runs through Sunday, July 31.

It’s all happening at 1 Sesame Street in Plattsburgh—rain or shine. This event is free for the whole family, but space is limited, so reservations are recommended.
