TUPPER LAKE - The Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce is wrapping up preparations for the second annual Tupper Lake Street Fest and Business Expo, to be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 17.
Vendors are still being signed up and the musicians have been named for the Street Fest, which will include artists, arts and crafts, food and fun for all. The activity will be centered on Park Street and Cliff Avenue, where street vendors will be available, music will be provided by Tres Amigos from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the Classic Car Show will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The popular Celtic band Inisheer, with musicians hailing from Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake, will give a free concert at 1 p.m. in the historic Beth Joseph Synagogue on Lake Street. Since 2003, Inisheer has been entertaining northern New York with high-energy, upbeat performances for audiences of all ages. Inisheer is enjoying increasing popular acclaim, playing traditional music from Cape Breton, Ireland, Scotland, Nova Scotia, New England, and the Appalachian region. The band has recorded three CDs.
The Tupper Lake Street Fest and Business Expo is made possible, in part, with a Developing Community Arts Grant with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program administered locally by the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks.
The Tupper Lake Street Fest and Business Expo will be held in conjunction with two other community events on July 17: the Tupper Lake Art Show at the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library and the Rotary All-Star Track and Field Meet at the L.P. Quinn Elementary School. The Waterfront Warzone will be taking place at the Municipal Park July 16 and 17.
