GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – This week in the North Country Weekend Calendar, anyone with a tractor can put it to good use, and have fun while doing it.

The 12th annual Carl Lufkin Memorial Pull for a Cure is set to kick off on Saturday, with a variety of vehicle types invited to raise money for cancer charities in Argyle. There’s also plenty of live music set for the weekend.

There’s a chance that Saturday activities get rained on, with an afternoon storm likely. But temperatures will calm down from 85 on Friday to mid-70s through the weekend.
