“We encourage you to participate in as many fundraisers for the Fourth of July Celebration as possible. Without the support of our area businesses and community members the celebration we all enjoy and has become a Ticonderoga tradition would not be possible. The celebration costs approximately $30,000 each year with most of that being raised by the committee. The Town of Ticonderoga does support the celebration but most of the budget needed is raised by the committee. Donations in support of the committee’s efforts are tax-deductible. Stay up to date with news by liking the Best 4th In The North on facebook,” shared Debbie Barber – Committee Chairperson.
The Best 4th In the North Celebration attracts many visitors to the Ticonderoga area every year
which supports local businesses and the local economy. A schedule for the 2017 celebration is currently
being finalized by the committee. The 2017 Best 4th In The North Celebration will take place July 1-4, 2017 with a grand fireworks display, parade, DJ, live music, food, vendors, rides, games and much more.
In addition the committee is looking for businesses, organizations, committees, local bands, and musicians who would like to participate in the parade. The theme for the 2017 Best 4th In The North parade is “Set Sail – A Nautical Theme.” Parade applications are available at www.best4thinthenorth.com. www.timainstreet.org, or at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office.
“We are working to continue to add new vendors, new food options, live music and other events in the park. We are working on a fantastic line up of entertainment for the four days. We also hope to expand the music within the parade by adding bands. Although this will increase our overall costs we want to continue to grow the celebration. We encourage businesses and organizations looking to participate in the parade to register early. The grand fireworks display has been arranged and the details for the rest of the event are being finalized. We would also like to thank Madden’s Pub for their support and for hosting this fundraising event for the committee,” stated Debbie Barber.
The Best 4th In The North Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:00 PM at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office in Ticonderoga. The committee is always looking for volunteers to help with the planning, fundraising and during the celebration.
