World’s Largest Garage Sale Fills Warrensburg This Weekend

Warrensburg Chamber Administrator and Event Coordinator Suzanne Tyler starts working on organizing the next year’s World’s Largest Garage Sale even before this year’s event has been completed. She works all year long planning and filling the streets of Warrensburg with over 500 vendors ready to present their wares to all treasure seekers.

“We are so jazzed about this year’s weather,” says Tyler. “It is going to be gorgeous. We are sold out of vendor space at the Chamber of Commerce end of things. Between the commercial, residents, and private garage sales happening this weekend, there is about a 5-mile radius for sales.”

Tyler mixes up vendors so they’re not all in the same location for the September 30 – October 1 event. People searching the Warrensburg streets can get a diverse opportunity in a smaller location or investigate all the various booths in search of that special find. » Continue Reading.

A Report From The Adirondack Harvest Festival

A customer makes her selections at a local vegetable grower’s farm stand at the Adirondack Harvest Festival in WestportLast weekend, I attended the Adirondack Harvest Festival, which was held at the at the Essex County Fairgrounds and adjoining Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) office in Westport. The family-oriented event had something for everyone and proved to be a marvelous opportunity to see the diversity of small agriculture in northern New York, and to meet and speak with area small-agribusiness owners and Extension agriculture researchers and educators. And with free admission, free music, and free educational demonstrations, including gourmet mushroom cultivation, soap making, beginner beekeeping, cider pressing, and much more, CCE, along with participating farmer-presenters, and numerous sponsors (Thank you so much!) made it as inexpensive as possible for the hundreds who were there, to attend, learn, and generally make the most of the afternoon. » Continue Reading.

Learning Moose at Great Adirondack Moose Festival

Though Brenda Valentine, President of the Indian Lake Community Development Corporation, founded Indian Lake’s Great Adirondack Moose Festival, she has still yet to see a live moose.
