North Country Weekend Calendar for Friday, Sept. 3, 2021

LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Labor Day weekend is upon us, which means a bittersweet end to a busy summer of festivals and live music throughout the North Country. Except, no, it’s not quite done just yet.

Starting on Friday, the Adirondack Independence Music Festival brings three days of music and revelry, featuring bands like moe. and Twiddle. After the concerts conclude each night at Charles R. Wood Park, an after-party will get rolling at DJ’s Nite Club in the village, with free admission for anyone with a festival wristband.

As you may have noticed from a chillier early morning, things this weekend are already to start cooling down as the region inches closer to the fall. Friday won’t quite make it to 70, with the rest of the weekend hanging in the low- to mid-70s range.
