Maple in April Festival....April 28 & 29, 2018
Hadley Prepares for Maple in April Festival
The “sweet” taste of maple syrup returns to Rockwell Street, Hadley for the 16th annual Maple in April Festival, April 28 & April 29. Saturday kicks off at 8 a.m. with pure Adirondack Maple Syrup poured over thick French toast served at Wilder’s Sugar Shack and the day continues with a Backyard Maple Syrup Producers Syrup Tasting Contest, the lil’Sugar Dust-off Car & Truck Show, while Rockwell Street and Stony creek Road are buzzing with artisans, crafters and food vendors galore.
New this year, a contest for those who have less than 150 taps and boil their own sap. “We want to keep the art of making maple syrup alive by offering to those collecting and boiling sap in their backyards an opportunity to the ‘bragging rights’ of producing the best tasting maple syrup in the area” said Sue Wilder. Register for the Backyard Maple Producers Syrup Tasting Contest by bringing a pint of your syrup in a glass container to Wilder’s Sugar Shack on Saturday morning.
The two day event is packed full of family-fun activities: amusements rides, bounce houses, face painting, farm pets, horse rides, and carnival games for the kids. Wand master, Titus Grandahl will help children turn their own wooden wand and Richele Ford will introduce her owls and hawks. Horse drawn wagons shuttle festival goers from parking lot to activity. There will be live music and dance performances, yoga demonstrations, child identification station, Cub Scouts’ Rain Gutter Regatta, model railroads on display, and rides aboard the Saratoga and North Creek Railway. Marty Podshock will tell about his travel book, the Adirondack 102 Club, which encourages people to visit all 102 towns and villages in the Adirondacks. Saturday closes with a Maple Glazed Ham Dinner at the American Legion on route 9N for $10 from 4:30pm - 7pm.
Sunday starts at 8 a.m. with the American Legion’s Scholarship Pancake Breakfast and continues all day with family-fun activities. Two new features added at the Hadley-Smead Memorial Park on Sunday; Dogs Day at the Park, includes search-and-rescue dog demonstration, dog agility, nail clipping, and pet parade, and then at 2 pm enjoy the music of local Church Choirs as they perform on the park’s band stand.

Planning Board News
TOWN OF HADLEY RESIDENTS
are now accepting letters of interest for new members.
Welcome to the Town of Hadley
Hadley is a small town (approximately 2000 residents) located in the Adirondack Park. We are the northernmost town in Saratoga County. We believe our town is a beautiful place to raise a family and a great place to visit while enjoying nature, friends and families. We are proud of our 2 town parks, both of which can be used for family gatherings, weddings, relaxation or just a place to bring yourself and the kids for a walk or to play. In the Spring of 2007, we upgraded our baseball fields in the Sam Smead Memorial Park by grating the fields and creating clay infields. The baseball & softball enthusiasts took full advantage of these upgrades. A 2-day tournament held in August collected items and money for our troops overseas. Some of the money raised was also donated to the Hadley-Luzerne Scholarship Fund. The tournament was held in memory of Steve Madison, a young soldier from Corinth (our neighboring town) who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We also pride ourselves with some walking trails along the Hudson & Sacandaga Rivers where you will find a canoe takeout on the Hudson while enjoying the peace and serenity of nature. You can also enjoy watching the rafters and kayakers at Dean Mountain Whitewater Park along the Sacandaga River which we consider the best whitewater in New York Sate. For the avid or average hiker, Hadley Mountain offers a steady moderate 1.8 mile climb and is located about 8 miles from the center of town on Tower Road and when you reach the summit you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the mountains and the restored Hadley Fire Tower.
