Volunteers Needed for Independence Day

Celebration in Cold Spring scheduled for July 6

The Village of Cold Spring is looking for volunteers for its annual Independence Day Celebration, which is scheduled for Saturday, July 6.

“Even an hour of your time selling 50/50 raffle tickets, manning a donation bucket or helping with the parade would be greatly appreciated,” said Village Trustee Frances Murphy.

If interested, contact Village Clerk Jeff Vidakovich by calling 845-265-3611 or emailing [email protected].

The parade will take place down Main Street at 4:30 p.m., and food and games will begin at the riverfront at the same time. There will be a dramatic reading of selections from the Declaration of Independence performed by the members of Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival and a bicycle decorating craft hour hosted by Gillian Thorpe of the Butterfield Library.

Returning favorites include the bicycle decorating contest, which this year will be judged by staff from the Desmond-Fish Library, a patriotic pet contest and a pie baking contest.  The day will continue with live music at our waterfront and end with a fireworks display.
