What's New In New York State!

Frozen Fire and Lights

, Adirondacks | Festivals & Annual Events

You don't want to miss this celebration of winter! It always happens on the last Saturday in February and there are TONS of fun activities and events. 


At Fern Park, there will be FREE sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing all day. Bring your own equipment or rent skates, skis, or snowshoes from Pedals & Petals in downtown Inlet.


Need a break from the activity? Relax by the bonfires, attend the King and Queen Coronation, watch cardboard sled races, watch fireworks, or enjoy some live music. Hungry? There will be wine, chocolate, pizza, hot dogs, and much more, including Happy Hour!


Back again in 2020 are the American Kitefliers Association! There will be a kite decorating workshop, and then members of the American Kitefliers Association will show participants the correct way to fly our kites. A huge thank you to the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks, the Scott Stuart Fund for Inlet, and The Woods Inn for making this happen.
