Thanks for Moose Festival help

To the News Enterprise:

On behalf of the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce, we thank the community for your support and participation in our successful 3rd Annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival (GAMF) Sept. 22-23. Thanks to our generous Bull Moose sponsors: Adirondack Camp Antiques, Frontier Communications, gra*Fix, Hamilton County Planning, Tourism & Community Development, Hutchins Construction, Inc., Indian Lake Restaurant, Tavern and Liquor Store, Indian Lake Theater, NCPR, Town of Indian Lake and WBRV. This year’s success was achieved because of your support.

The two-day family fun event continues to grow and was visited by more than 2,000 people who came from all over the Northeast and as far away as California, Texas and internationally Athens, Greece. The Festival highlight was the “Forever Locked” moose exhibit which featured taxidermy of two bullmoose whose antlers became permanently locked during a fight. The annual Moose Calling Contest attracted 160 people who cheered on 21 adult and youth contestants at the Indian Lake Theater. In addition, the Big Moose Tent on the Indian Lake School lawn featured 14 vendors who sold Adirondack themed and handmade crafts.

Thank you Vicki Virgil and Jennifer Zahray who hosted more than 50 children during Moosterpiece games and activities. We thank all of our Festival activity facilitators and volunteers, Big Daddy and Momma Moose sponsors, Hamilton County Express, News Enterprise, Indian Lake Garden Club, Indian Lake Museum, Indian Lake Central School District, ALCA, North Country Crafters, American Legion, Marty’s Chili Nights, Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake Fish and Game Club, McCadam Distributors, Indian Lake Fire Department, ADK Refuge and Rehabilitation Center and Blue Mountain Lake Boat Livery for helping make our 3rd Annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival profitable, entertaining and educational.
