LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Labor Day Weekend ends another summer tourist season for the village of Lake George. With kids going back to school, the demographic for the goings-on in the village may change this fall.

That said, it’s not as though things are about to go all quiet. This week, as tourists leave the Lake George area, they’ll quickly be replaced by a horde of classic vehicles.
