2015 Fourth of July Fireworks for the Katahdin Region
"Our Katahdin" is pleased to announce our next project to help fund the 2015 Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce Fireworks, co-sponsored by each of YOU through "Our Katahdin". We hope you agree this a great opportunity for each of us to contribute!
Every July, residents and alumni of the Katahdin Region come together to celebrate Independence Day with local parades, street vendors, dances, games, prizes, food and fun for everyone. The Fourth of July celebration has been a "regional reunion" for many decades with families coming together for barbeques, spending time at camp or simply reuniting with those who you don’t see on a regular basis. One thing for sure, the capstone of the region's festivities has always been the spectacular fireworks show that is now organized by the Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce.
When? After sunset on Saturday, July 4th in Millinocket. The Fourth of July is on a Saturday this year, making it easier for those near and far to participate in the festivities and enjoy the colorful explosion in the sky! Regional activities are currently being developed leading up to the fireworks and will be published by the Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce in the early spring.
Let’s keep the tradition going:
Our Katahdin is looking to raise $2,500 in support of the Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce’s organizing of the fireworks.
