A Taste of Octoberfest, the lighting of the St. Regis Fire Tower, Sunset Stagecoach Rides to the beach, and Adirondack history and trivia highlight the 5th Annual "Light Up Your Senses."

The Hohmeyer family, in partnership with the Friends of St. Regis Mountain Fire Tower and Lucky Clover Farms, present the sixth annual fundraiser for the restoration of the historic fire tower on St. Regis Mountain.

Fire towers played an important and illustrious role in protecting the Adirondack Mountains. The Friends of St. Regis Mountain Fire Tower work with the State of New York to light up the tower once a year to commemorate this significance. They are a totally volunteer organization that has worked hard to rejuvenate this iconic landmark and make it accessible to the public.

Enjoy one of the best views of St. Regis Mountain and the lighting from our beach with a Taste of Octoberfest Dinner. Add in a spectacular Sunset Stagecoach Ride with Lucky Clover Farm to make it a unique and fun experience!
