Thousands of snowmobile enthusiasts take advantage of this opportunity to be the first to preview next year’s line of sleds and gear.

Fri Mar 13 St Patrick's Day Parade - 5pm down Main Street in Old Forge. This is a "don't miss" event! This is the best (and only) Irish Parade in the Adirondacks. Creativity is always the main theme of this parade. Along with the usual participants, many groups are secretly making costumes and floats that will be a surprise for this year’s parade. Individuals now try to outdo their prior year’s costumes or floats. Parade favorites return year after year. Local pickups with snowplows will entertain while in formation, under the name Synchronized Snowplows. The Old Forge Redheads group will be there, as will the Old Forge Irish Setters Club (which still has many dogs, but no Irish Setters). The Precision Shopping Carts will again be weaving their formations up Main Street, in spite of the poor physical conditioning of the pushers!
