major dealers: Ski Doo, Yamaha, Polaris, and Arctic Cat will
premier their 2018 models. Demos rides, conditions
permitting. Please contact Old Forge’s local dealerships for

Fri March 17 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!
