2024 Fourth of July Parade Call For Participants 

Lake Placid is planning its annual Fourth of July celebration, complete with a parade down Main Street. The organizing committee is encouraging organizations, civic groups, individuals, businesses and others to participate in this year’s parade on Thursday, July 4, at 5:00 p.m.

According to Organizing Committee Member Catherine Ericson, there are some exciting changes to the parade this year. “We are working to make this parade bigger and better than ever,” she said. “The committee is encouraging businesses and organizations to enter floats in the parade. Floats should center on the theme of the ‘peoples’ parade,’ which allows for a wide range of creative ideas, ultimately showcasing the people in our region, who contribute to the fabric of our incredible community. We are encouraging creativity — friend groups, neighbors, official or even non-official clubs — anyone can participate.”

All parade floats and participants will be automatically entered into a contest, with trophies awarded in a variety of categories: civic; volunteer; school; business; independent; and most patriotic. 

Those interested in taking part should contact Catherine Ericson at the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST) via email: catherine@roostadk.com. Parade registration should be received by June 20 and should indicate if participation will include a float or if your group will walk in the parade.

Parade participants will prepare at 4:45 p.m. on Parkside Drive; parade announcers will recognize individual entries as they pass by Mid’s Park.
