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.

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.

4th of July Celebration
In 2020 things will look different in Long Lake & Raquette Lake. Long Lake’s beach will close earlier than normal, times to be announced.  

There will NOT be any traditional activities in the early evening.  There will not be live music, popcorn, strawberry shortcake, Penelope the Clown or a BBQ. We are so sad to see those traditions not happen in 2020, but we look forward to their return in 2021.

The Town of Long Lake has not announced any plans for fireworks at this time. NYS Guidelines on fireworks are pending. Currently there are no mass gatherings over 50. 

The Long Lake Town Beach will be closed to public gatherings at 6pm on July 4th.  No congregation will be permitted after the Beach is closed. Bathrooms will remain open for our temporary traffic and for boat traffic.  

In the event groups choose to gather in any public spaces all groups must be spaced out minimum of 10 feet.  

Raquette Lake Fireworks are 100% cancelled for 2020. 

For any and all events in public spaces and at our local area businesses please note all physical distancing protocols are in place. Maintain six feet apart and please wear masks/cloth face-coverings when visiting public spaces and businesses in our community when you are less than six feet apart from others.
