As the foliage is looking spectacular and the colors are bold and picturesque so is the time for music, great food and plenty of ale!! It has got to be 19th ANNUAL OKTOBERFEST at Whiteface Mountain! RICH YOUR NEWSCASTER filling you in that now is the perfect time to visit the Adirondacks in Lake Placid and head on over to the Mountain for this entertaining event.
This annual event will be featuring authentic Bavarian music, dancing, food and beer, as well as complimentary rides and activities for both kids and adults, including some amazing craft vendors! (Got to love that Balvarian lager and the most scrumptious German food…yum yum for the tum tum…hehe). So, when is this all happening you ask, well it will be this coming weekend Saturday and Sunday October 2nd and 3rd. While you are there I suggest you take the Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride to the top of Little Whiteface because the view is spectacular and the foliage is just gorgeous this year. Stay at the Golden Arrow and hop on to the complimentary transportation to Oktoberfest.
For an extra treat there will be all kinds of Figure Skating talent at the OLYMPIC CENTER. The 2011 NORTH ATLANTIC REGIONAL FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS will be taking place from Friday October 1st until Tuesday October 5th 2010. Skaters from all over the Eastern US will be competing to acquire their dreams of gold. There will be plenty of spins, jumps and choeography to enjoy through this four day extravaganza.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!! Do not let the cooler temperatures stop you! Head on over to Lake Placid this weekend and get in on all the excitement. You will not want to miss it. (Do not drink to much lager…oh well why not..lol). Okay, I am off to grab my accordian and tune up for the upcoming festivities (maybe the leiterhosen too…haha).
