Fife & drum corps from around the country will be part of this year’s Ticonderoga Streetfest.
The corps will be in town to participate in the annual Fort Ticonderoga fife & drum crops muster and have agreed join the Fort Ti Fife & Drum Corps at the downtown event Saturday, July 28.
“Featured entertainment includes the Fort Ticonderoga Fife & Drum Corps, led by Mike Edson, who will again kick off the event at 10 a.m.,” said Rolly Allen, Streetfest chairman. “As an added attraction this year the corps will be joined by visiting corps who are participating in Fort Ticonderoga’s annual muster. Together they will march down Montcalm Street, playing as they go. You won’t want to miss this fantastic start to 2012’s Streetfest.”
The fourth annual Streetfest will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Ticonderoga’s Montcalm Street. The vent will feature arts and crafts, shopping, food, fun, entertainment and family activities.
“Join us as we again convert Montcalm Street into a pedestrian mall filled with kiosks, food vendors, arts and crafts, antique and new automobiles and boats, artisans and other exhibits,” Allen said. “Food offerings will be extensive and we’ll have free live entertainment staged on the street. There will be much to see, experience and enjoy.”
Entertainment will include vocals of McKenna Lee and the Eva Channel from Burlington, who will play contemporary rhythm and blues, and Loose Connections from Crown Point, who will play blues, rock & roll and reggae. Penelope the Clown will be on Montcalm Street to entertain children and All ‘Bout Critters will have an animal display.
Streetfest is sponsored by the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership.
“I’m truly impressed with what a small committee of dedicated volunteers has been able to accomplish for our community, their enthusiasm is contagious,” said John Bartlett, Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership chairman, said of Streetfest. “Plan to come early so that you and the kids don’t miss a thing.”
Montcalm Street between Lake George and Champlain Avenues, the downtown area of Ticonderoga, will close to traffic from 8: a.m. to 5 p.m. All parked cars should be removed by 7 a.m. prior to the street closure.
Vendors who wish to participate can go online at the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership website, www.timainstreet.org, or visit the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office on Montcalm Street. Completed forms should be returned to the TACC at 94 Montcalm St., Suite 1, Ticonderoga 12883.
“There is much to see and do in Ticonderoga this summer,” Bartlett said. “Be sure to visit the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce website, www.ticonderogany.com, frequently for a full calendar of events.”
