Events in Lake Placid for the Whole Family
Spring and early summer events in the North Country usher in the ever rising temperatures, the flowers of spring and equally plentiful outdoor activities
In nearby communities such as Saranac Lake and Wilmington, two events stand out. Daffest is our welcome mat event for the cheerful and beautiful harbinger of Spring, the Daffodil. A plethora of events make up the 10 days of Daffest. In Wilmington anglers convene yearly in mid-May for fishing event of the year, the Ausable River Two -Fly competition.
Following along in June, the Lake Placid Marathon kicks off the summer sports season, followed by the Lake Placid, I Love NY and Adirondack Horse Shows - 3 weeks of extraordinary international show jumping. This event typically draws around 1,000 of the worlds finest show horses to the Adirondacks.
