The Adirondack Carousel will host a screening of the Mountain Lake PBS Roadside Adventures episode highlighting the New York State Carousels on Thursday, August 21st at 5 pm in Saranac Lake, NY. This free event invites the public in to experience the carousel, learn more about it through the episode, and meet and greet with Derek Muirden, Senior Producer of Roadside Adventures. Roadside Adventures has received numerous accolades, including the New York State Broadcasters Association Award for Best Travel Series, for its unique and whimsical look at regional attractions.
Operations Manager of the Adirondack Carousel, Jennifer Hunt states, "this is a wonderful way to see these beautiful works of art, carved and donated by crafts people from across the country and to hear more about the Carousel, how it came to be built in Saranac Lake and what it means to the community."
This free screening of Roadside Adventures at the Adirondack Carousel is scheduled to take place in conjunction with Saranac Lake’s Third Thursday Art Walks. These self-guided art and music tours through downtown Saranac Lake take place on the third Thursday of every month, all summer.
“Mountain Lake PBS is always looking for ways to highlight the strengths of our local community, and the Carousel is a great example of that,” said Alice Recore, President & CEO of Mountain Lake PBS.
The Adirondack Carousel recently celebrated their 2nd anniversary of opening to the public. Season 6 of Roadside Adventures will begin its second run on August 28th. Episodes will also become available online as they air each week.
