Ring Of Fire

You may remember the old Johnny Cash song about love being a burning fire that makes a fiery ring. “Ring of Fire” was Cash’s biggest hit song and has also become an annual hit at the Great Sacandaga Lake to mark the end of summer.

The Ring of Fire is a celebration that started in the late 1980′s by local residents at the lake who, after cleaning the brush from their properties, decided to build huge bonfires.

The thought was to involve the community around the Great Sacandaga Lake in the southern Adirondack mountains as neighbors were encouraged to join in and light the fires. The idea grew and many families and businesses around the lake now partake in the festivities with cookouts and parties with friends and neighbors.

The Sunday evening of Labor Day weekend was chosen as bonfire night. The event happens rain or shine so the tradition continues tonight. Check out the shoreline and you can expect to see fires all the way around. Although nobody is ready for summer to be over, it’s a hot (and cool) way to get ready for the coming cooler weather.
