May events in Lake George draw huge crowds of like-minded people. Girlfriends bring women of all ages together for seminars and activities at the Sagamore Resort, and the amusement park fans gather for the Opening Weekend at the Great Escape. Many June events in Lake George are humongous, can’t miss festivals that visitors return to year after year.
