WHAT: More than 1,000 MINIs are expected to roll into Lake George on Saturday, July 9, as part of the legendary MINI owners rally — MINI Takes the States. During this epic touring rally, MINI owners will travel from Burlington, Vermont, on Saturday, July 9, on a 9-day adventure that will take them to a total of nine states before they reach the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Sunday, July 17, for a weekend of MINI fun and community activities.

The Lake George Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau (LGRCVB), a division of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB that works as an extension of the Warren County Tourism Department, is thrilled to assist these MINI owners as they stop in Lake George to rest and enjoy a meal and the scenery. In addition, the LGRCVB worked with the Village of Lake George Department of Public Works to place a giant Sasquatch for a photo op for the MINI owners and secured a parking area.

WHEN: Saturday, July 9, 2022, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
