Indian Lake marks Independence Day with fishing to fireworks

Sunday, July 07, 2013 - Updated: 9:59 AM

The Town of Indian Lake held its Independence Day celebration Saturday, July 6, lucking out with a warm and mostly sunny day. The busy day began with a Kids' Fishing Derby at Byron Park on Adirondack Lake. After the fishing derby many of the children headed over to the fish and game club's shooting range on Chain Lakes Rd., where they were introduced to target shooting and gun safety. While that was taking place in Indian Lake, over in Blue Mt. Lake the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts was holding its annual fundraising auction. A parade down the main street to Byron Park was themed "Summer Fun - Adirondack Style" and had many floats, classic cars and tractors and groups marching. Awards went to: Best Float, Cub Scout Pack 92; Best Dressed Tractor, first place Ernie Pollman; and Best Dressed Tractor, second place Cindy Corrow. The grand finale was - of course - a great, loud, colorful display of fireworks over Lake Adirondack that began shortly after dark and lasted about a half an hour. (Photos/Pete Klein)

With the parade's theme "Summer Fun - Adirondack Style" it was only natural that many of the floats had camping as their theme, as did this one from Indian Lake Volunteer Ambulance Corps.

Rockets galore with thundering booms heard and seen all around Indian Lake, especially by the large crowd that gathered near the shore of Adirondack Lake at Byron Park, marked the end of Indian Lake's Independence Day celebration.

If the governor is decked out for his upcoming Adirondack Challenge white water race like the crew in this raft from Adirondack Sports Rafting Company that brought up the rear in the Indian Lake Independence Day parade Saturday, July 6, it will be a truly amazing and historic day.
