Outhouse Races

That’s right! Outhouse Races! A must see for the whole family not to miss! Local teams work diligently to build their most creative, hilarious, and aerodynamic outhouse. Teams compete against each other in a fun race for the fastest outhouse team. Your team could be this year’s winner. Message us on Facebook if you’re interested, there is always room for teams! Held on the ice off of Shepard Park, however, weather dependent, an alternate location will be chosen should the ice not meet our criteria’s!         Don’t miss this LGWC tradition where SH*% really happens!

Our Famous Cook-Off’s

This is one of the fan favorites that is held each Saturday during the month of February.  The LGWC hosts a friendly competition among our local restaurants. Each weekend they are given a menu item for us to serve anonymously to the crowd:  Chili, BBQ, Chowder and Wings!  For a small fee, you become the judge and are given a ticket.  Once you taste all of what we have to offer (usually a minimum of 12 different items), you then chose your favorite and cast your vote!!  The restaurants love the friendly competition and the crowd enjoys the tasty treats. This event is generally a sell-out and served til’ gone!  Make sure to get there early for your spot in line!

NYS Motorcycle & ATV Ice Races

Competitive motorcycle and ATV races come from all around the region to compete in the ice races held on beautiful Lake George. It’s exhilarating to compete in and a crowd favorite. For more information contact Frank Carpinello at (518)330-3648 or (518)542-2144 or online at
