April may bring showers, but it’s also a great month if you’re planning a trip to the Adirondacks. There are always fun events happening on the weekend, as well as an array of seasonal activities to experience. Check out some of the things you and your family can do this coming weekend in the ADK!
Get Outdoors & Have Fun
Although spring is mostly about warm weather outdoor fun, ski season isn’t over just yet! Some ski resorts, such as Gore Mountain, are still open, so head over to one of them for a final ski/snowboard trip.
Got your fishing license? Ready for an adventure? Trout fishing season has begun, so plan a trip to the Adirondacks for some excellent fishing opportunities. From ponds to rivers and streams, there are plenty of fishing spots to try out.
Attend Free Arts Events
On Friday from 5:00pm-7:00pm, NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery will present an opening reception for “Poetic License,” an exhibition which celebrates the creative connection between the written word and visual art forms with poetry readings and companion pieces of art. The reception is free and open to the public, and there will be refreshments.
Looking for an event your younger kids will enjoy? Bring them to the Bookstore Plus in Lake Placid for their Second Sunday Story Time and Crafts for Kids event. This Sunday, the free craft will feature a dinosaur dig and dinosaur hats.
Hunt For Those Last Easter Eggs
Easter Egg Hunts in Inlet – Saturday, April 7
On Saturday at 1:00pm, Inlet will host their Kids Egg Hunt for children up to 12 years of age at Arrowhead Park. Then, later in the day at 5:00pm, the Adult Egg Hunt will be held at the nearby Fern Park.
Learn Something New
One of the most unique classes offered at the Adirondack Folk School is the craft of blacksmithing. Want to learn about how it all works? Sign up for the 4-day Introduction to Blacksmithing class with instructor Dick Sargent.
Discover the role Abbot Augustus Low played in developing the area around Horse Shoe Pond in the Adirondacks into a meeting place for the well-to-do. This program is part of Adirondack Experience’s Cabin Fever Sundays series of lectures.
