Lake George Village’s Shepard Park, home to over 60 annual concerts and events, is now wired for Wi-Fi.
Lake George Village Board of Trustees authorized the installation of equipment and a contract with Spectrum to provide the internet service throughout the popular park.
Visitors to the park will now be able to stream live concerts, get advance notice of events and encourage others to join them.
All the events at the Village’s park are free including the very popular Jazz Festival, Firemen’s Family Festival, Rockin’ with Ronald Music Fest, Lake George Community Band Festival and the Fridays’ at the Lake Band Concerts.
Installation costs amounted to approximately $13,000 according to Mayor Robert Blais with funds coming from parking meter revenue.
“This is another great service we are able to provide for visitors and residents alike that will enhance their experience in our beautiful park,“ the Mayo said.
