Help get Irish 2000 Fest back on its feet after to the torrential downpour of 2014. The  organizers are hosting a fun fundraiser (fun-raiser, get it?) on June 6th from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds.

Visiting Saratoga for the weekend and not sure where to stay? Take a look at The Westchester House Bed and Breakfast. I recently had the opportunity to speak with one of the owners, Stephanie Melvin, who provided me with the rich history of The Westchester House. From its beginnings nearly 130 years ago to Stephanie and her husband, Bob's, complete restoration project, the house is truly one of Saratoga's treasures.

On Wednesday, we wrote about the City's ban on craft beer, wine, and distilled spirit vendors at the Saratoga Farmers' Market. Thanks to some very passionate pleas to the Mayor's office, we're proud to spread the word that the City has reversed its decision and breweries, wineries, and distilleries will be at the Farmers' Market starting tomorrow, May 9!

Have your 4th of July celebrations been lacking a certain dazzle in the past? New York State's ban on consumer fireworks has made duds out of some Independence Day festivities, but this year things are looking much brighter!

Saturday kicked off the outdoor season for the Saratoga Farmers' Market. Always a hit with Saratogians and visitors, alike, vendors and attendees this past weekend took note of a major change that disappointed many. 

One of Saratoga Lake's most popular vacation destinations will be celebrating its revitalization with a Grand Opening on May 30! Brown's Beach Resort has a long history dating back to the late 1800s, but has recently been re-engineered and updated into a spot where memories can once again be created for visitors and locals of all ages.

SPAC's Rock & Run 10k and 5K fundraiser is the perfect, high-energy kick off to summer and is a great way to support opportunities for local children to experience the performing arts.
It will take place on May 17th at SPAC beginning at 9:00 A.M. with a 1K Kids' Run followed by the 5K and 10K races at 9:30 A.M. There will also be over 20 Capital Region bands performing along the running routes and at the free post-race party!
