North Country Weekend Calendar for Friday, Aug. 27, 2021

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – This weekend’s North Country Weekend Calendar has a few distinct things on its mind; funnel cake, fun houses and horse rides, just to name a few.

The Washington County Fair’s grand return at its home in Greenwich has been running all week, and is set to swing into full stride this weekend.

It’s also a good weekend for golf. Skene Valley Country Club is hosting a tournament benefitting Rutland Regional Medical Center, and Cronin’s Golf Resort is hosting one benefitting Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Whether at the fair, the green, or somewhere else, the weekend is set to be sparing with the sunlight, with partly cloudy highs of 83 on Friday and just 75 on Saturday. Sunday is back up to 80, but welcomes a chance of some rain along the way.
