Fourth of July Parade Event Details Announced

24 Jun Fourth of July Parade Event Details Announced

Lake Placid is sharing details of its highly anticipated annual July Fourth celebration, featuring a parade down Main Street and the breathtaking “Set the Night to Music” fireworks display over Mirror Lake. The parade will begin at 5 p.m. at the post office on Main Street and conclude at Saranac Avenue. 

The festivities also feature live music in Mid’s Park; the bluegrass band “Nubble” will take the stage from 1-4 p.m. and the Lake Placid Sinfonietta from 7-9 p.m. In addition to the parade, the Lake Placid Horse Show is hosting the I Love New York Horse Show from July 2 to July 7, with events starting at 8 a.m. More details can be found on the Lake Placid Horse Show page.

The music, parade and fireworks provide a perfect backdrop for celebrating the day with family and friends. “The Fourth of July parade is a highlight of our community celebrations,” said Catherine Ericson, spokesperson for the organizing committee. “Each year, we see an increasing number of participants, and we encourage everyone to join in the fun, build a float, and celebrate with us.”

This year, the organizing committee has established a “quiet zone” along the parade route for attendees with noise sensitivities. This considerate addition to the festivities will begin at Eastern Mountain Sports on Main Street and extend for the duration of the parade, ensuring a more inclusive experience for all.

The day’s grand finale is the “Set the Night to Music” fireworks extravaganza over Mirror Lake at 9:30 p.m. Spectators will be treated to a stunning display of colors and patterns choreographed to a musical soundtrack. The music will be simulcast on LAKE FM 93.3 or WLPW Adirondack 105.5; listeners can tune in on their portable radio or download the station apps on their mobile device.

The Lake Placid July Fourth organizing committee invites organizations, civic groups, individuals, businesses, and others to join this year’s parade. Floats should center on the theme of the “peoples’ parade,” ultimately showcasing the people in our region who contribute to the Lake Placid community. 

All parade floats and participants will be automatically entered into a contest, with trophies awarded in various categories: civic, volunteer, school, business, independent, and most patriotic. For more information, contact Catherine Ericson at the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST) at Parade participants should prepare at 4:45 p.m. on Parkside Drive, with parade announcers recognizing individual entries as they pass by Mid’s Park.
