A re-creation of the regattas and races on Lake George, NY that were common throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The Bolton Landing Boats & Boating Festival, a day-long event at the Rogers Park docks in Bolton Landing, will feature dozens of small boats from that era, powered by oar, paddle, and sail. There will be in-water and on-land exhibits and demonstrations, and live music.
This is a chance to experience and learn about the historic boats you may only have seen in photographs in books and museums. The event is hosted by the Bolton Historical Museum, and will be reminiscent of the photos and boats depicted in its current exhibit, "Along the Shore: Boats and Boating on Lake George from 1890-1920.” The museum is adjacent to the regatta site and will be open that day to visitors.
