What do BBQ Food, Horses and Riders and Figure Skaters have in common? Come on now!! Still confused?? It is the kick of Lake Placid’s Summer Season. That is right! Time to break out the ole barbeque grills and enjoy the great tastes of a BBQ! Speaking of which it is a great time to mention the I LOVE BBQ FESTIVAL held this coming weekend from June 29th through July 1st, 2012. OHHHH!!! LA LA!! MADAME CUISINE grilling up some great flavors for you on my grill! Also, would like to mention about the festival of great food that will be grilled up in Lake Placid. (I cannot wait to taste all this great food….DELICIOUS!!). What is this festival all about? Well, let me tell you!
This festival will be featuring music, kid’s rides, food demonstrations and a professional barbecue competiton sanctioned by Kansas City Barbecue Society! This competition brings in some of the best culinary BBQ talents in the nation. Including our very own Madame Cuisine! What makes it even better is that the money raised by this event helps to fund the SHIPMAN YOUTH CENTER which is a local recreation center for Lake Placid’s Youth.
Before or after you fill your belly on some great food, our very own sweetie of the town Richard has some other great ideas. If the sun is out!! Why not head over to the Horseshow Grounds where some great competition is taking place. THE LAKE PLACID HORSESHOW is taking place from June 27th through July 1st. See Equestrians from all over the world competing for large cash prizes. It is a show not to miss. If mother nature is raining her gloominess on us all. Please do not fret my dears!! Stop inside the HERBS BROOKS ARENA in the Olympic Center where the LAKE PLACID SUMMER FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS will be taking place June 28th through July 1st, 2012. Skaters from all over will be spinning, jumping and putting out their best choreography to vie for the Gold Medal. This is an amateur series and is a competition ranging in all ages. (I tried spinning around and around on figure skates before and I think I bore a hole right through the ice…lol)
If I have not wet your appetite as of yet for this weekend. Then, boy I have not done my job. There is a lot of great activities to keep everyone busy both inside and outside. Have a great weekend and we will be back next week to bring you the 4th of July events that are set for Lake Placid.
