Cardboard boat races in Cranberry Lake
Sunday, July 24, 2011 - 9:07 am

The Grey Ghost make its third appearance Saturday at the third annual Cranberry Lake Cardboard Boat Race. Captain Ernie Giraud, of Wanakena and Cranberry Lake, and first mate Ron Capone of Wanakena, seem to be enjoying participating in the event, which drew 13 entries. This year’s race included music by the band “Giant and the Green Foam.” Adirondack Lake and Trails Outfitters of Saranac Lake displayed canoes, kayaks and boats all afternoon for viewing, test-driving and purchase. The Cranberry Lake Lodge provided a concession stand for refreshments. Photo submitted by Suzanne Liberty. For a photo of the youth division winners, click here.
