A local 'holiday': Jumpin Jacks Opens TODAY!

Real Estate Agent with Miranda Real Estate Group, Inc. NYS 10401214143

Today’s the day! Yes – it’s my father’s birthday and that alone makes it an extra-special day. But for those of us in the Scotia-Glenville and surrounding areas, it’s also the unofficial start of summer.  Today we ignore the forecast for snow's arrival tomorrow and enjoy the tastes of summer that comes with the season opening of Jumpin Jacks!

Anyone in this area probably has their own “Jumpin Jacks story”. I have a lot! It was one of the first places we visited as a family having just moved here from Maine (imagine being the 15 year old out with her family on a Friday night to this popular student hang out!); it was the place I met lifelong friends and my husband being part of the US Waterski Show Team that practices and performs on the neighboring river bank; it was the place where I ate way too many cheeseburgers as part of pregnancy cravings for my first born. It’s not fancy. It’s just good ol’ fashioned food in a fun setting where you’re bound to run into someone you know.

Now entering it’s 65th season, Jumpin Jacks will open today at 11:00 am.

Good morning Brenda Mayette ,

How could I forget "Jumpin Jacks!" A place we all frequented growing up..a place to hang and enjoy the weather, our friends and family! You brought back some great memories!

Happy birthday to your Dad, Brenda. Had not heard of Jumpin Jacks before, but sounds like a great place enjoyed by locals during the "season."

It sounds like a popular spot among the locals and Jumpin Jacks will no doubt be hopping with hungry people today.

Sure will and lots of students with "appointments" today will be escaping school for a bit too.  LOL
