Central New York: March

Come Snowshoe With Us at Stone Quarry Hill Art Park!
Cazenovia‚ NY 
Join Chary Griffin, one of Cazenovia's top snowshoe competitors, for a hike on the beautiful trails of Stone Quarry Hill Art Park on Sunday March 8 from 2-3:30 PM. $10 suggested donation. Bring your own snowshoes or rent from Bike Loft East in Manlius on Saturday March 7 during their winter blowout sale.
St. Patrick's Day Parade
Old Forge‚ NY 
5pm down Main Street in Old Forge. This is a "don't miss" event! This is the best (and only) Irish Parade in the Adirondacks. Creativity is always the main theme of this parade. Along with the usual participants, many groups are secretly making costumes and floats that will be a surprise for this year's parade. Individuals now try to outdo their prior year's costumes or floats. Parade favorites return year after year. Local pickups with snowplows will entertain while in formation, under the name Synchronized Snowplows. The Old Forge Redheads group will be there, as will the Old Forge Irish Setters Club (which still has many dogs, but no Irish Setters). The Precision Shopping Carts will again be weaving their formations up Main Street, in spite of the poor physical conditioning of the pushers! After the parade, everyone is welcome at The Old Forge Fire Hall to sample Irish Stews that are made by local chefs, and are judged for Best Irish Stew by the public. Soda bread and green beverages are also offered to everyone free of charge.
Canal Street String Band
Norwich‚ NY 
With three voices, fifty-five strings and a pair of cow bones, The Canal Street String Band puts a brand-new shine on some seriously fun old American music.
Peking Acrobats
Norwich‚ NY 
Since their Western debut in 1986, THE PEKING ACROBATS have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. They push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing juggling dexterity and incredible balancing feats, showcasing tremendous skill and ability. They are masters of agility and grace. Often accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music and awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant entertainment event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival!
