Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – This weekend in the North Country Weekend Calendar includes a time to observe and remember 20 years since the attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

On Saturday, there are some local events sharing stories from responders who were there; with some acknowledgment of the more recent struggles around the COVID-19 pandemic to boot.

That said, there’s still fun to be had this weekend. The Adirondack Nationals Car Show is already back in Lake George for the weekend, with a Show N Shine at Fort William Henry and a long list of festivities to boot. Further north, North Creek is spending a weekend hosting historical events including a graveyard walk and talks on the topic of Theodore Roosevelt’s local connections to the region.

The weekend starts off cool and breezy, with temperatures not set to climb above 70. Things will stay fairly sunny through the weekend, and be back up to 80 by Sunday.
