Clifton Park 4th of July: Fireworks & Crowds Return
Clifton Park's annual 4th of July celebration is ready to get back to normal with fireworks and plenty of people to show their Patriotism!
One of the toughest aspects of the pandemic was missing out on so many of our big celebrations, and event by event most seem to be getting back to their pre-pandemic level of experience. Add the Clifton Park 4th of July celebration to that growing list.
After holding a small celebration and parade last year without fireworks and limited attendance, the Daily Gazette is reporting well get back to its "traditional" setup this year. Fireworks will return to Clifton Common, as will concessions this year. There is no exact day-of timeline for the event, yet, but a full schedule is forthcoming. The only thing set right now is the parade which will kick off at Noon proceeding from the Shen School Campus on 146 to the Common.
Fireworks and food returning are great but I think the biggest thing returning this summer is our sense of community. Events like this where you spend quality time with your neighbors are priceless. I am a Clifton Park resident and I look forward to watching my kids wave their American flags at the celebration this year. I look forward to shaking hands with old friends and new. I look forward to celebrating with my neighbors. It is part of our identity as Americans.
Lake George and several other local fireworks displays will be returning this summer. You can see more here.
