SARANAC LAKE – The Women’s Civic Chamber and Hex and Hop Brewery are hosting a new family event in Saranac Lake. The organizers hope that this new festival will become annual.
Next Saturday, April 2, the first-ever Mountain MudFest is coming to the Mount Pisgah Recreation Area.
Scheduled for rain, snow or shine, the highlight of this event is a cornhole tournament with a winning trophy, medals and cash prizes for the top three teams. Registration fees from this “Cornament”, — as the organizers call it — plus a percentage of proceeds from each participating local vendor will go to the Women’s Civic Chamber and two other local organizations, the Saranac Lake Youth Center Capital Campaign and Food Pantry interfaith.
The event will feature live music by the Midnight Stargazers and 80k Players. Food will be offered for sale by ADK Street Eats and locally brewed beer and mead will be available through Hex and Hop Brewing. There will be a playground, with family games and activities. ADK ArtRise and Adirondack Brick will be on hand with activities and crafts for kids. The Tri-Lakes Humane Society will be on hand to introduce the community to some of their current clients.
Mountain MudFest will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the cornhole tournament starting at 1 p.m. Admission is free, but there is a $40 registration fee to participate in Cornament. Anyone interested in participating can pre-register for the mount at https://linktr.ee/mountainmudfest.
