A dinner to suppirt Ticonderoga’s annual “Best Fourth in the North” celebrate is on tap.
Eddie’s Restaurant will host “Best Fourth in the North Night” Monday, May 5, 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. It will feature a spaghetti dinner. The cost for the dinner will be $12 for adults and $6 for children age 12 and younger. Take out will be available.
“We are working on adding new vendors, live music and other events in the park,” Debbie Barber, Best Fourth chairwoman, said. “We also hope to expand the music within the parade. We encourage businesses and organizations looking to participate in the parade to register early. Applications are available online or at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office.”
The theme for the parade this year is “Ticonderoga, The First 250 Years.” The community will mark its 250th anniversary later in July.
“The celebration costs between $25-$30,000 each year,” Barber said. “The majority of money needed to host the celebration is raised by a small group of people. The town of Ticonderoga does support the celebration, but without many fundraisers throughout the year Ticonderoga would not be able to host the ‘Best Fourth in the North.’
“On behalf of the committee I would also like to thank Dave and Beth Iuliano for hosting this event,” she said.
