Annual Fourth of July Festivities Return to Long Lake, NY and Raquette Lake NY
Join the Town of Long Lake in celebrating the Fourth of July festivities all happening on Monday, July 4th. The day is full of family friendly activities starting with the Fourth of July games in the morning, 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.
The Long Lake Fire Department returns in 2022 with a BBQ featuring their July 4th favorite, Sausage and Peppers, Hot Dogs and drinks at the Long Lake Town Beach from 3 p.m. until they run out. Please note: There will not be Strawberry Shortcake in 2022.
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.
In Raquette Lake there will be Fireworks From “The Barge” at Dusk. Enjoy the lights and echoes from your own boat, or from the shores of Raquette Lake. A special time on a lake in the Adirondacks boasting over 100 miles of shoreline, so there is plenty of room to catch this special show.
