July 4th is right around the corner and there’s a ton o’ fun to be had leading up the big day. Here is your handy dandy guide to a fun filled week in Schroon Lake.
Monday, June 25
There's one Schroon Lake tradition that everyone loves -- and that's sitting back in air conditioned comfort, bag of pop corn in hand with a nice cold soda in a classic art deco cinema. Every night in the summer is movie night. Now playing at The Strand is Snow White and the Huntsman, every night this week 'til Thursday (when there's a new film) at 8pm.
Can you hear the twang of guitars and banjos? If not, get your ears and butt down to the Band Jam at the Boathouse. Unamplified instruments of all shapes and sizes are welcome at 7 pm. Do yourself a favor and check this out.

Zumba Queen Cathy Peace won a lot of new fans at the Schroon Lake Opening Weekend Demo she gave over the Memorial Day Weekend. Now, locals and the summer people can sweat off those extra summer calories in Cathy’s twice a week Zumba workout. Every Tuesday and Thursday mornings (8 am to 9 am) @ the Schroon Lake Central School gym, join Cathy for some rockin’ Zumba. $5 per class.
