As the holiday weekend approaches both the weather and the event forecast are looking superb. And while we know Mother Nature can change her mind at a moment's notice (keeping our fingers crossed) we know that the event forecast is pretty much set to go rain or shine! If you are looking to join in some of this weekend's festivities, here is a quick run down of what's in store...
July 4th Weekend Event Schedule:
July 3, 2014
Let's start with what we know you're looking for... when are the fireworks? July 3rd is the day, dusk is the time. Friday evening, the Tupper Lake Municipal Park will be filled with activity as friends, neighbors and new acquaintances come together for the annual Tupper Lake Fireworks Display, a show which we might add is guaranteed not to disappoint!
July 3, 2015
The annual Tupper Lake Independence Day Chicken BBQ will take place the Tupper Lake Municipal Park Pavilion starting at 3pm. Stop by and get your fill as the Moose Lodge grills up a superb 1/2 chicken meal sided by corn on the cob, baked beans and salt potatoes. Dine at the pavilion or take your meals to go. Either way you are sure to be able to enjoy more time exploring with your family and less time slaving over your own grill or stove.
The Great American Garage Sale

Calling all treasure hunters, pickers and bargain shoppers: the community of Tupper Lake will once again host The Great American Garage Sale starting on Friday, July 3rd and running through Sunday, July 5th.
