    September 26th, 2012

    Area Lake George Events in September 2012 are aplenty and can be enjoyed by families of all ages. They encompass a mixture of annual Fall events (including Warrensburg’s World’s Largest Garage Sale 2012) and new autumnal activities. The last weekend in September 2012 (Sept. 29-30) is especially sublime because of the variety of fun & exciting things to do packed in just one weekend.
