— The 2014 StreetFest will be held in conjunction with the “Ticonderoga, The First 250 Years” celebration.

Chaired by John Bartlett, the group’s promotions committee has a varied agenda.

The annual WinterFest will not be held this year, but the panel is reviewing past events with hopes to returning WinterFest in 2015. A Community Clean Up Day is scheduled Saturday, May 17. The TMSP promotions committee will coordinate efforts.

The promotions committee is also planning the annual Street Art project with an auction slated Thursday, Aug. 28, at the Best Western Plus; HalloweenFest Friday, Oct. 31; a shopping effort to help stock the Ticonderoga Food Pantry; and the annual North Country Christmas Shopping & Dining Night in December.

The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership reorganized last year, contracting with the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce for services and creating an executive board composed by committee chairs with one additional board member. There is also a TMSP board of volunteers and downtown businesspeople.

TMSP leaders to expand participation in the organization in 2014. People interested in serving on committees should contact the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office at 585-6619.
