Recognizing the diverse culinary preferences of its customers, the market this year is asking the chefs to develop separate meat-centered and vegan plates, and an optional third plate of their own creation. Max London won the competition previously in both 2011 and 2010. The competition will be held on the south lawn of the market, adjacent to the large public parking lot on High Rock Avenue. Spectators are welcome, free of charge. For More Information Call: 518.581.0435.

5. On Saturday run for your life in the Zombie 5K at Great Escape! Before the race you will be given 3 flags that must be tucked into your shorts and worn with one flag on each hip and one flag on your lower back. These flags represent your lives. It is your goal to finish the race with at least 1 life flag. It is the zombies goal to take all of your lives and maybe a limb or two. Just like in a video game, once all 3 of your lives are gone, you "die! The race is benefiting the American Red Cross Adirondack Saratoga Chapter. Check out this link for more information.
