Fall is Festival Time in the Lake Placid Area

Sep 2, 2014 by I Love New York Staff

Oktoberfest, Flaming Leaves & Brewfest Highlight the Fun Lake Placid, N.Y. - No one really likes it when summer comes to an end. But hold on, there's a forgotten season in between summer and winter, it's autumn. It's perhaps the best time of all to be in the Lake Placid, N.Y. region. Temperatures are generally cooler, there's less humidity in the air, you can still enjoy several of your favorite non-winter outdoor activities and there are fewer bugs to swat away. And then there's the beauty of the fall foliage that will surround us.

Sep 2, 2014 by I Love New York Staff

Frank and Malachy McCourt's two-character play predates classic books Angela's Ashes, ‘Tis and A Monk Swimming Schenectady, N.Y.- Limerick, Ireland in the 1930s. There was little to laugh at for Brooklyn-born Frank and Malachy McCourt, hardscrabble sons of a shiftless alcoholic who dragged his Depression-era family across the Atlantic from bad to worse.

But laugh, they did.

A Couple of Blaguards, which comes to the GE Theatre at Proctors Sept. 26-Oct. 5, is the boisterous barroom autobiography of the renowned sibling authors. First produced in New York in 1985, Blaguards was the comedic springboard for Frank's instant classics Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, and Malachy's A Monk Swimming.
