Ice Castles is an awe-inspiring, must-see winter phenomenon that brings fairytales to life January and February. This winter, escape into an icy wonderland at The Festival Commons in beautiful Lake George, New York. Lake George, New York is one of only five locations across the United States. Each castle is approximately an acre in size and consists of more than 25 million pounds of ice.  See more here.

Every Saturday and Sunday in February, winter enthusiasts flock to Lake George Village to watch, support, and participate in the cook-offs, races, tournaments, games and other activities on the ice and around the village. See more here. (Photo credit: The Post Star)


At 7pm, a short fireworks show will take place in Lake George Village.  The explosions will take place overhead, rather than over the lake, so the best viewing areas are the sidewalks throughout the Village.   And, Beach Road Parking Lot and the adjacent section of Beach Road will be closed to through traffic from 6:30-7:30pm, allowing for plenty of socially distant spectating.

Duration: 8 min long

Best Place to Watch: 

  1. Village Sidewalks 
  2. Or, the Beach Road Parking lot, and the adjacent section of Beach Road.

When: 7pm-7:08pm

Wear Masks & Stay Socially Distant.  (Otherwise, we won’t be allowed to continue the shows)




Lake George’s new public ice skating rink  is fun during the day and magical at night.  A charming new rink will be waiting for you next to the Shepard Park beach.  Bring your skates, and your camera, because this will be a moment to remember.  (Weather/ice dependent)
