Tupper Lake’s Party on Park Scheduled

21 May Tupper Lake’s Party on Park Scheduled

New Tupper Lake businesses will celebrate recent openings during event.

The fifth annual Party on Park, organized and presented by Tupper Arts, will take place on Saturday, May 25, from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Organizers are celebrating the arrival of summer with live entertainment, activities, vendors, information from local organizations, food and more. 

Many recently opened businesses will celebrate with ceremonial ribbon cuttings to commemorate new locations, or their establishment as part of the Tupper Lake business community, beginning at 11:00 a.m. These businesses include: Battlefish Charters; McClelland Family Farmstand and Adirondack Sky Center and Observatory. 

According to Evie Longhurst, executive director of the Tupper Lake Arts Center, Party on Park is considered to be the official kickoff to summer in Tupper Lake. “This event has become a great opportunity to celebrate our community,” she said. “It offers a wonderful opportunity for people to show their excitement about our community, and also to learn about various businesses, activities and attractions.”

The event welcomes many people from the region, with many traveling to Tupper Lake, specifically for the event. Coinciding with Memorial Day weekend and the Great Adirondack Garage Sale, Party on Park offers one more opportunity to celebrate the local community.

The Tupper Lake business community is always excited about the annual event, offering specials and special merchandise exhibits to those who visit. Representatives from many local organizations will also be on-hand to share information about their important work within the community. Park Street businesses, along with approximately 30 vendors including the ADKX The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake and The Wild Center are planning activities and exhibits. Local food and craft products, artists, including an artist offering caricature skills, balloon sculptures  and face painting will also contribute to the day’s exciting atmosphere.

Park Street will be closed to traffic, creating a festival-like atmosphere, so that attendees can mingle with friends, neighbors, business owners and visitors. Throughout the day, stores will be welcoming shoppers and browsers as they showcase new products and services. Vendors will be offering a diverse selection of products and services. Entertainment will take place at locations along Park Street and within businesses. Food and beverages will be provided throughout the day by a number of community-based restaurants, food trucks and breweries.

According to Longhurst, Party on Park has become very successful over the years due, in large part, to the support it receives from the entire community. “This event is so inclusive of everything our community offers – the people, the businesses within it, our artisans, local restaurants, music, and our amazing attractions. We want to share that with everyone in the region,” she said. “Tupper Lake has so much to offer. It’s exciting to showcase, and it’s even more fun to celebrate.”

The annual event will also feature live music by recording artist and local favorite, Brock Gonyea along with food specials from local restaurants and vendors. Beer lovers will have an opportunity to try some of the best beer in the region, with free tastings by Raquette River Brewing throughout the afternoon.

Party on Park is a joint initiative of Tupper Arts and the Park Street business community.
