Adirondack summers seem to bring festivals while Adirondack winters bring carnivals. Spread throughout the Park, towns and villages take out the stops to celebrate the season.
Long Lake is no exception. On January 16, 2016 the community will bring together wacky and wild activities as part of their 15th Long Lake Winter Carnival.
Moonlighter’s Snowmobile Club member Paula Piraino says: “This year the town has formally taken over the coordinating of Winter Carnival from the Moonlighter’s Club though they have been heavily involved in the past. The Moonlighter’s Club is still involved as we sponsor the Broomball Tournament and the traditional crowning of the king and queen.”
