To get out on the water this summer, there are just a few things you need: a kayak, a paddle, a life jacket, and you’ll probably want some sunscreen too. Don’t have a kayak yet? No problem! The Ticonderoga Best 4th In The North Committee is raffling off a 10-foot kayak that would be the perfect way to jump start your Adirondack paddling season.
Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5 and are available from committee members. More information on where to get tickets will be available on the Best 4th In The North Facebook Page. All proceeds will benefit Ticonderoga’s annual 4th of July extravaganza, which attracts visitors to the area and boosts the local economy. The celebration, taking place July 1-4 this year, includes fireworks, a parade, live music, food, vendors, rides, games, and more.
Interested in getting involved in the planning process for this amazing event? The Best 4th In The North Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:30PM at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office and is always looking for volunteers to help with the planning and fundraising, among other tasks.
By entering the raffle, you not only have a chance to get a brand new 10-foot kayak for as little as $1, but you’ll also be helping to put on the best 4th of July celebration in the region! Buy your tickets and get one step closer to paddling season today.
