FEST: Shake the Lake for Vets Sake @ Lake George’s Wood Park


Shake the Lake for Vets Sake

The Shake the Lake for Vets Sake festival takes over the Festival Space at Wood Park in Lake George this weekend.

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:

$5 donation at the gate
Live music by E.B. Jeb and Rustic Overtones
