Labor Day weekend marks the “unofficial” end to summer.  And Fulton County has a special way of seeing summer out… the annual Ring of Fire around the Great Sacandaga Lake.

Bonfires are lit around the shore of the lake at dusk on the Sunday night prior to Labor Day.  The glow of the fires is accompanied by fireworks at Sport Island Pub, Northville.   Don’t have a camp or house on the lake?  Don’t worry Lanzi’s on the Lake, Mayfield, hosts a giant bonfire.

If participating in the celebration please remember to be safe.  Keep your fires under control and close to the water.  If boating during this unique opportunity, be cautious and remain within all regulations and guidelines.

While this is the closing of the summer season remember that Fulton County has many fall activities and events!  For more information:
