FEST: Shake the Lake for Vets Sake @ Lake George’s Wood Park
The three-day Shake the Lake isn’t only about having a great time in the fresh air – a portion of proceeds go directly to the Adirondack Vets House, a non-profit transitional housing facility in Glens Falls for veterans in Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties.
The family-friendly fest promises kids activities, bounce houses, obstacle courses, tethered hot air balloon rides, a rock wall, face painting and more. And, of course there will be plenty of live music, as well.
Three-day, all-fest weekend tickets are on sale for $30. Single-day tickets and VIP passes are also available.
Here’s the complete three-day festival schedule:
SATURDAY (JUNE 13): BATTLE OF THE BANDS, 12noon-11pm
$18; VIP $50 (includes t-shirt, VIP access, meet & greet)
From 2-6pm Local 518 bands will battle for cash prizes as determined by the judges – Chris Jamison and Matt McAndrew (both alum of NBV-TV’s “The Voice”), as well as Local 518 fave Rich Ortiz and Ruger Radio’s James Ruger. Plus performances by Funkalicious from 7-11pm.
