North Country Weekend Calendar: Sales on the lawn, volleyball on the beach

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It’s a North Country weekend full of great sales, with Project: Cameron’s Story and Southern Adirondack Independent Living both hosting yard sales benefitting their organizations. There’s also GEM Fest, returning to Lake George with arts and music on Saturday.

Weather into the weekend has settled into the 80s, specifically peaking at 86 on Saturday. Some rain may pop up, but hopefully not enough to rain on any parades; or concerts; or volleyball matches.
