ADK Throwdown: Glass Blowing Competition in Glens Falls

42 Degrees presents five-day competition ending with Holiday Party and Grand Prize Ceremony

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. — Downtown Glens Falls retailer 42 Degrees presents a brand-new glass pipe blowing competition called ADK Throwdown, set for Monday to Friday, December 3 to 7, 2018. 

Each day, two glass artists will be creating new work in the 42 Degrees studio at 23 Park Street. Visitors are invited to watch the artists in action during the day at no charge. 

The tournament ends with an awards ceremony and presentation of the grand prize of $2,500 to the winner during 42 Degrees’ Annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 8, from 7 p.m. to midnight. The Holiday Party will also feature live glass blowing, live music by Hasty Page, and refreshments. Admission is free.

Participating Downtown businesses will offer a special or discount to ADK Throwdown attendees. Visitors can pick up a punch card at 42 Degrees, visit the businesses listed for a stamp, and return their stamped card to be entered into a raffle. The punch card prize is a gift basket featuring items and gift certificates from Downtown Glens Falls businesses valued at $250.

The $2,500 Grand Prize will be chosen based on a combination of factors: Votes via 42 Degrees’ Instagram (, votes cast in person during the December 8 Holiday Party, and votes cast by event organizers.
