GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It’s holiday showtime in the North Country this week. Friday night, a trip to Shepard Park in Lake George will net you a live performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and a ride out to Granville will give you a parade of holiday tractors that will make your spirits bright like only Washington County can. It’s also another open house weekend at the Glens Falls Shirt Factory.

Despite the holiday cheer, it’s set to be a relatively warm weekend. Highs hit 42 on Friday, shoot up to 58 on Saturday and settle back down to 45 on Sunday. Nights stick around the 30s.
