LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Halloween has come and gone in the North Country. November may feel like a quieter month for the Lake George and Glens Falls region, as families get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas is on the way – but things are far from quiet on the lake.

This month’s highlight events include a pumpkin toss at Adirondack Pub and Brewery to celebrate the end of Halloween. Later in the month, the village will be lit up in an annual holiday light show. In Glens Falls, the Adirondack Thunder have just started its ECHL hockey season. Find out what’s going on this month in the Lake George region.
