“Made in the Adirondacks” is the theme for the 20th Annual Indian Lake Country Christmas Tour, which gives visitors an inside view of the lives and work of many local and regional artisans and crafters. This town-wide holiday activity is designed to promote community pride and holiday spirit. This annual event is a self-guided tour to visit artisans and crafters who offer a variety of holiday gift items for sale in their homes, Indian Lake Central School Gym and various locations throughout town.
While parents shop for their holiday gifts, youngsters are invited to attend the “Gifts to Give” Children’s Workshopon Saturday morning at St. Mary’s church hall, which is designed to engage youngsters in hands-on activities as they make their holiday gifts. Santa Claus promises to visit during the workshop as well as at crafter locations and the Indian Lake Central School Gym during the afternoon.
On Friday, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will present special Christmas stories designed for children ages three to eight year old at St. Mary’s church hall. Cookies will be served and families may take souvenir photos with this famous couple! Santa Claus will also make appearances throughout the day at crafter locations and the Indian Lake Central School Gym.
Area residents, community groups and businesses will be presenting their themed Christmas trees during the Festival of Trees exhibit at the Indian Lake Central School Gym. Vote for your favorite tree by making a donation, which will benefit the Community Action Agency (local food bank).
Many shoppers return to Indian Lake each year to get a jump on holiday shopping by purchasing their gifts during the Country Christmas Tour. First time visitors to Indian Lake will be able to locate artisans and crafters, businesses and activities with ease, as Brochures/Maps will be available at the Chamber of Commerce, Town Hall and at many businesses and crafters throughout the town.
