Let’s Celebrate our Independence.

Fourth of July is coming in Bolton Landing on Lake George! Our country’s date of independence is one of the most exciting days of the summer, and one of the biggest causes for celebration throughout the entire year. Bolton’s fourth of July celebration is a time-honored tradition. If you’re spending this year’s holiday in town, here’s what you can expect.


Even though the Fourth of July is on a Wednesday, Bolton Landing on Lake George will be bustling. The flag-lined sidewalks will be teeming with folks wearing red, white, and blue, and the road in and out of town will be backed up with people itching to get out on the water.

You should join them. Even if you don’t have a boat, several rental marinas in Bolton Landing offer safe and comfortable vessels to get you off the dock and into the water. If you’re unsure about renting a boat with an engine, visit Lake George Kayak Company and rent a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard.

If you’re more of a land-lover, hang out on the beach all afternoon. Both Rogers Memorial Park and Veterans Memorial Park have large, clean beaches. Spread your towel in the sand for some tanning and a nap, or splash into the water and keep yourself cool all day long. And since one of the most important parts about the Fourth of July is having a barbecue, don’t forget to bring supplies and take advantage of the charcoal grills in both parks.


Of course, the Fourth of July celebrations aren’t complete without a fireworks show. For the show of a lifetime, join the Lake George Steamboat Company on their Fireworks Cruise. Their three boats will cruise out of Lake George Village just in time for the colors to start popping off.


Each cruise will have live music. The 9 p.m. cruise on the Minne Ha Ha features Bobby Dick and Susie Q, the 9:10 p.m. cruise on the Mohican features Milayne Jackson Blue Train, and the 9:15 p.m. train on the Lac du Saint Sacrement features the Danny Lombardo Ensemble.


You don’t have to cruise to get a great view of the fireworks in Bolton Landing. Gather at Rogers Memorial Park in the center of town, spread a blanket on the grass, and sit back and enjoy the show.
