It's finally here -- Schroon's Opening Weekend, and there is so much to do, we don't have a clue where to start. That's why we have this handy, dandy link to all of the action this weekend, from the Summer Expo, to the Hot Air Balloon Ride, Free Children's Petting Zoo, rock and roll, garage sales and an Art Show. Oh, did we mention there will be specials at area restaurants throughout the weekend? And a chance to meet some incredible Birds of Prey? Download the program right here, or read on after the jump, about all that's happening in Schroon Lake.
