The Carnival is in Town!


“There has not been a carnival in the Town of Amsterdam in over 43 years!” exclaimed one local resident as he walked through the gate of the Carnival at Polar Plaza sponsored by the Friends of Sanford Stud Farm.  “It is larger than it looks from the road!’ was also heard among the many people in attendance. The professional midway put on by Gillette Shows is clean, safe and every child receives a prize on the many games of chance. The rides are amazing and fun. The carnival also sells pizza, hot dogs, fried dough, cotton candy as well as the decadent deep fried oreo cookies!

A portion of the proceeds from the carnival rides benefit the not-for-profit local organization Friends of Sanford Stud Farm. It is a fun event so please come, have a good time while helping the FSSF restore a national monument to local thoroughbred racing history. FSSF has an information table at the carnival entrance where they are selling raffle tickets to win a $1,000 cash prize and tickets for a takeout chicken dinner held in September.  Stop by and say hello!

The carnival is open Saturday August 15th from 1pm to 10pm and Sunday August 16th from 1pm to 6pm!

Auger Falls


At the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Hamilton County, New York is Auger Falls (Latitude 43,4673 Longitude -74,2465). Just north of the intersection of Routes 30 and 8 near Wells you will find a dirt road with 2 parking areas. Trails are marked by DEC and there is a sign in log at the falls end of the trail. A short walk through a wooded area takes you to a lookout over the falls. A walk along the waterway yields fantastic views of Adirondack scenery.  A FujiFilm X-T1 camera was used to create these images.
