Independence Day celebration set for Indian Lake

— The town of Indian Lake’s Independence Day Celebration Weekend will take place on Saturday, July 6.

The day will kick off with the Annual Kid’s Fishing Derby at Byron Park starting at 8 a.m. The Indian Lake/Blue Mountain Lake Fish and Game Association sponsors this event every year with over 200 kids participating. This is a free event for kids under the age of 16.

New this year, the Fish & Game will also be sponsoring a Kid’s Shoot at the Range on Chain Lakes Road, 2- 4 p.m. This will be an introduction to Target Shooting & Gun Safety, .22 caliber and BB guns will be used.

Saturday will also bring the United Methodist Church’s Bazaar, Bake Sale and Flea Market. There will be many homemade baked goods and handmade items for sale, plus many gently used items. It all starts at 9:30 a.m. and goes to 1:30 p.m. The Bake Sale and Bazaar will take place at the church on Main Street and just south at the parsonage the Flea Market will be held. In Blue Mountain Lake, the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts will be holding their Annual Auction & Block Party. The auction starts at 10 a.m. and finishing up at 2 p.m., with the block party starting at 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.

The Indian Lake Volunteer Fire Department will be holding its Annual Chicken Barbecue at the Fire Hall. Stop in after 4 p.m. to enjoy this meal, but make sure you get there early because they will more then likely sell out.

Saturday evening, at 7 p.m., there will be a parade down Main Street. The theme for this year’s parade will be “Summer Fun…Adirondack Style.” The float contest will be judged on the theme and the floats should reflect this theme. Again this year we will have the best dressed tractor competition. Deck your tractor and enter it in the parade. Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, no lawnmowers please.
