The committee is also always looking for new ways to work with area businesses and organizations to assist in the celebration. Any individuals, businesses or organizations interested in helping can get information online at www.best4thinthenorth.com.

In 2012 the “Best Fourth in the North” celebration will be a four-day affair, July 1-4. A detailed schedule of events is now being planned.
