About this event

The fire tower lighting is a statewide event that started in 2014. The idea was to allow those far and wide to see the light on the horizon and remember and pay tribute to the days when the fire rangers would stand watch in the fire towers to protect the community and surrounding forests. 

Many fire towers in the Adirondacks will participate in the annual state-wide lighting of the towers. For the 9th annual event, volunteers will light up the fire towers on Saturday, September 3 between 9 and 9:30 PM. 

Rain date - Sunday, September 4, 2022, at the same time.
