4th of July Festivities Return in 2021!

Annual Fourth of July Festivities Return to Long Lake, NY
Join the Town of Long Lake in celebrating the Fourth of July with a return to our annual celebration festivities.  The day is full of family friendly activities starting with the Fourth of July games in the morning, food, snacks, swimming and fun in the afternoon and a free concert with Grit n Grace.  End the night with the best fireworks in the Adirondacks with friends and family.
 
Starting at 10 a.m., join us at the Long Lake Town Ball Field for games for people of all ages.  Classic favorites include a relay for the youngest, as well as balloon races, sack races, egg toss and a three-legged race.  Children will have a great time competing for prizes and, with over 1,000 prizes to choose from, children will want to join in the activities again and again.
 
Finish out the evening dancing until dark with live music from country band Grit n Grace, from central NY, starting at 6:30 p.m. Their blend of modern country, rock, hits and dance music will have everyone celebrating. The evening concludes with the best fireworks in the Adirondacks at dusk.  Fireworks can be seen from the beach, boat, or the Mt. Sabattis Pavilion.  We look forward to seeing you there!

If you find yourself in neighboring community of Raquette Lake, you’ll be able to enjoy your own fantastic Fireworks Extravaganza.  This event takes place at dusk.  Enjoy the show as it blasts off from “The Barge” in the middle of Raquette Lake. Enjoy the lights and echoes from your own boat, or from the shores of Raquette Lake. A special time in a small remote lake in the Adirondacks, sure to never forget!

Kids Fishing Derby of 2021 and 100 Fish!

The Long Lake Kids Fishing Derby was held in Long Lake, New York on Saturday, June 5, 2021. The event was staged at the Long Lake causeway overlooking Jennings Park Pond.  Over 46 children through age 15 registered for the event and over 100 fish were caught.  Jennings Park Pond had been stocked by the Long Lake Fish and Game Club and Town of Long Lake with trout provided by Avery’s Fish Hatchery.  In addition to the rainbow and brook trout two Golden Trout were stocked as part of the coveted catch.
 
A variety of sunfish, perch and trout were weighed in by Garrett Clark. Master of Ceremonies and Fish and Game Club volunteer Jimmy Waite and his trusty assistant Louie the Lobster were happy to get back to business collecting prizes and coordinating the event.  Jim Waite garnered over $800 in prizes and  donations from businesses in the community.  Volunteers Jim Swedberg and Marty Furlong handled bbq duties serving up hot dogs and hamburgers to all the participants. Bruce Jennings helped get the grill and tent to the staging area provided by Another Paradise Cove.
