Christmas Fun For All 2016

The Christmas spirit is everywhere in greater Schroon. There are activities, events and music performances all month long, making our hamlet a go to destination. And there’s no shortage of Christmas shopping, from home furnishings, fashion and fine art.

The BIG SHOW STOPPER of course is the Schroon Lake Annual Old Tyme Christmas Celebration, on December 10. See posting above. But there's a whole lot more happening! Here’s the guide to Christmas, featuring locals and local events.
