March 2015

Fri March 14 St Patrick's Day Parade - 5pm down Main Street in Old Forge. This is a "don't miss" event! This is the best (and only) Irish Parade in the Adirondacks. Creativity is always the main theme of this parade. Along with the usual participants, many groups are secretly making costumes and floats that will be a surprise for this year’s parade. Individuals now try to outdo their prior year’s costumes or floats. Parade favorites return year after year. Local pickups with snowplows will entertain while in formation, under the name Synchronized Snowplows. The Old Forge Redheads group will be there, as will the Old Forge Irish Setters Club (which still has many dogs, but no Irish Setters). The Precision Shopping Carts will again be weaving their formations up Main Street, in spite of the poor physical conditioning of the pushers! After the parade, everyone is welcome at The Old Forge Fire Hall to sample Irish Stews that are made by local chefs, and are judged for Best Irish Stew by the public. Soda bread and green beverages are also offered to everyone free of charge.

Fri & Sat March 13 & 14  Snofest - Preview the 2016 snowmobiles. Held at the Hiltebrant Recreation Center on North Street in Old Forge. Sponsored by the Central Adirondack Association
